Comments - Beautiful portrait of a young woman as the Heron Maiden, peering mysteriously from around the edge of her umbrella, her face partially concealed by the white cloth over her head. She wears a white kimono with delicate cloth embossing and a blue and white print lining, tied with a black obi with geometric shapes. The figure contrasts beautifully with the softly shaded background, which features baren marks. The first time we've offered this lovely design.
