Japanese Hanging Scroll Kakejiku 

This vintage Japanese hanging scroll (kakejiku or makimono) features an illustration of three Japanese gods. The deities are in the clouds, with symbols of the moon and the sun on the left and right of the picture. It is in a monochrome black-and-white style. 

Kakejiku is a Japanese picture or calligraphy mounted on a piece of paper. Kakejiku was a tool to spread Buddhism in Japan. It has been integrated with Japanese culture as interior decoration. Tokokake is used at the Tokonoma in tatami room. Chakake has Zen words used in the tea ceremony room. Buddha-kake is used in the Buddhist altar.
