Item description - YO23010131
Ranma Suzaku, Antique Japanese Wood Carving Panel - Japanese Ranma (欄間) are traditional wood carving panels also known as transom. These expertly handcrafted art pieces are famous for their astonishing detail, three-dimensional depth and composition. Traditionally, Ranma are used to decorate the space between the ceiling and lintel between rooms and hallways of temples, Ryokan and traditional Japanese homes. Because of the open structure of the Ranma they function as authentic ways to improve lighting and ventilation of rooms. With that being said, Ranma can generally be used to decorate any wall in a mesmerizing way.

This particular Ranma shows a great amount of depth with the woodcarving popping out of the frame with a great number of layers for about 30 centimeters. The composition shows a scene in between branches of an old tree. In the middle of the Ranma a Vermilion Bird can be spotted, in Japanese beter known as Suzaku (朱雀). The mythical bird is a symbol of the south according to the ancient Chinese constellation. Additionally, the creature is also the symbol of fire and of the summer season.

On the right side of the Ranma a waterfall can be spotted, partly obscured by a big cloud. There are many Asian folktales involving waterfalls. One of the most famous tales is that of the golden Koi. Out of a big school of Koi, one was able to swim to the top of the waterfall. The gods recognized the particular Koi for its perseverance and strength, turning it into a golden dragon. The water splashing up symbolizes the Koi from this tale.

This Ranma is very vulnerable so the transportation options have to be thoroughly discussed. If you are interested, please contact us directly.
