A Japanese peony, considered the “king of flowers,” has a symbolic meaning that includes wealth, good fortune and honor. The peony originated in China. Around the eighth century, the Chinese introduced the peony to Japan. The peony is a favorite flower in gardens all over the world; its symbolic meaning serves as an inspiration for a variety of art forms.
In the kakejiku world, displaying the kakejiku of a peony painting is considered the best hospitality for a guest. Therefore, this kakejiku is often displayed even in seasons other than early summer.
We mounted the painting of peonies in the kakejiku (Japanese hanging scroll). The white color of this painting is very beautiful and gold paint is gorgeous. The colors of the mounting fabrics are very subdued, so they accentuate the main work.
