Japanese Hanging Scroll Kakejiku 

This vintage Japanese hanging scroll (kakejiku or makimono) features a portrait of an old woman with a broom. She is a symbol of long life and usually appears in pairs with her husband. There are mountains in the background and a plum tree with blossoms in the foreground. This piece is signed with a name and a red seal.

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.
