This beautiful new kit has been adapted for bunka embroidery from an artwork by Japanese artist K. Eisen.  He was a prolific painter of “beauties” in the early part of the 19th century.  At the time, censorship policies forbade the identification of the lady portrayed.  In a rather clever way of getting around this, Eisen would use an identifying feature such as an element of a family crest (mon) to be used somewhere in the artwork.  It is possible that a clue to this lady’s name is somewhere in the picture.

I would like to thank the Rjik Museum / Amsterdam for access to the original 1825 artwork and their kind permission to use it as an inspiration for this Bunka kit.
