Decorative paper

Decorative paper, Kyoto
These are papers used for calligraphy and on the papers are Tanka, thirty-one syllabled verse, or Haiku, a kind of poetry, written by ink and its brush.

The papers are decorative with many tiny pieces of gold and silver leaf and the papers themselves can be artworks.

Hi Macky =O))

Ohhh, this paper is so lovely, that I couldn't dare to write on it to do calligraphy or do Origami with it.

Why Japanese made such a beautiful paper???, then it's a pity to do something with them, since they by themselves are pieces of art. =O))

Have a beauty day!! =O))
