Painting on a Japanese-Styled folding screen
Japanese traditional Byoubu-e and Kakejiku were displayed in the homes and Samurai Castle and nobilities more than thousand years ago as appreciation of art and nature.
The term "Byobu" figuratively means "protection from the wind".
These Japanese folding screens are made from several joined panels bearing decorative paintings.
The traditional gold/silver colored screens are mostly used in ceremonies and events. Others are used as
decorative enhancement in rooms welcoming guests and/or patrons.
A typical size of Byoubu screens measures at approximately : 160cm (5.3feet) in height and 300cm (9.1feet) in width.
