Extremely Rare Triptych of a Military Procession, Japan 19th century
A wooden triptych with finely sculpted contours, representing an important military procession comprising 42 armed and foot infantrymen, bearing pennants and banners and 3 horsemen with more than one wealth. Each character is finely carved in ceramics, bone, mother-of-pearl and some powdered faces of ivoirine and polychromy are very expressive.
The set is of high quality and particularly rare scene.
The procession begins at the top of the 1st left panel and turns on the 3rd panel on the right to return to the 1st panel.
