Spring's Dyed Obi - Attractive woodblock from a series by the artists Tomoaki Iida and Sugimura Sanko depicting patterns for obi, the sash or belt worn with a kimono. These lovely images feature seasonal flowers along with more stylized, decorative designs in soft, muted colors. Some prints feature accents of metallic silver or gold pigment, or embossing.
