Yamashiro, Snow at the Imperial Palace, Lady Sei Shonagon, No. 38 - Lovely portrait of the poet Sei Shonagon at the Imperial Palace. The well-known tenth-century poet was invited to the royal court by Empress Teishi, who appreciated her wit and clever observations. She is shown lifting the fine bamboo blinds enclosing the verandah for a closer view of the plum blossoms. She wears a beautiful formal kimono, her long hair falling loosely over her back. The inset above features a writing desk holding a scroll with a poem about snow. A beautiful Chikanobu design, detailed with embossing on the white kimono collar.
