Story & Recommendation
Japanese Engimono good luck charms and designs for Japanese celebrations
The Chiso Gallery was established as a location for the long-standing Kimono maker Chisho—an over 400-year old dealer of the finest Kyo-yuzen Kimono—to exhibit the different art, and dyed and woven textiles they have collected over the years. The exhibition currently on at the gallery is called “DESIGNS FOR JAPANESE CELEBRATION.” Japanese people have long prayed for happiness and placed significance on the sound of peoples’ names and the nature of the Japanese fauna and flora, believing that they are connected to good fortune and prosperity. However, this may only be something that is born out of the sensitivities of the Japanese people, who have for so long lived with—and paid such close attention to the beauty of—the forever changing faces of the seasons. However, it is precisely this sensibility that has lead to those faunae and flora of Japan becoming the subject of so many Japanese paintings, designs, and decorations. This exhibit focuses on the pieces of Chiso’s collection, which are embedded with such hopes, elation, and well wishes for the said nature of Japan. The exhibit also looks at how Japanese people would have celebrated special occasions as well, so through the beautiful kimono and paintings on display, you can get an in-depth look into the different celebrations of Japan.
