A word from the store
The original owner had the cover re-tailored around the Showa period (1926-1989).
The old cover must have been badly damaged.
This is a pity.
The painting inside is estimated to be from the late Edo period.
The details of the artist are unknown, but the way the facial expressions are drawn is quietly powerful, reminiscent of daruma (a type of Japanese doll).
There are some marks and stains on the silk inside, but the work is in relatively good condition with no noticeable damage such as tears.
The meaning of the vermilion color is said to have been painted to prevent smallpox (vermilion in color), which was prevalent in the past.
Other paintings were also painted to ward off evil spirits and bad luck, and to celebrate children's festivals.
Zhong Kui is a Taoist deity, mainly from Chinese folklore. In Japan, people dedicate pictures and dolls to him during Tango-no Sekku (Dragon Boat Festival) because he is believed to be effective in warding off pox and achieving academic success. The image of Shoki is also believed to be effective in warding off evil, and is often displayed as a banner, a folding screen, or a hanging scroll, or placed on a roof. Note that Zhong Kui (Sho-ki), painted in vermilion, comes from the fact that the red color was said to be effective in preventing smallpox during the Edo period. He is always depicted with a long beard, dressed in the costume of a Chinese official, holding a sword and staring at something with his big eyes.
