18th -19th C. Tokugawa Shrine Gate at Nikko Japan 24 ins. by 24 ins Embroidery with Pigments from Museum

This 2-foot square embroidery with pigments shows the Tokugawa Shrine Gate at Nikko Japan, a historical site where six of the Tokugawa Edo Period Shoguns are buried. There is a larger version of this work in the Metropolitan Museum in New York. I am not sure of the significance of the Chrysanthemums flowing from under the roof of the gate….was it celebratory or mourning….pretty sure the museum in New York would know. The embroidery had a black paint matching touch-up, and is in beautiful condition.
