Canon Japan and The Tsuzuri Project with British Museum On the EOS 5DS R, Shows “River Festival at Tsushima Shrine” & “Birds and Flowers of Autumn and Winter” from the original collection of paintings to create a high-resolution facsimile of the valuable sliding-door, On the EOS 5DS R.
From Canon Japan:
“The Owari Tsushima Tenno Festival dates back nearly 600 years and is even said to have been enjoyed by the feudal lord Oda Nobunaga. “River Festival at Tsushima Shrine,” the original of which is in the collection of the British Museum, was painted over 300 years ago and depicts the festival as it was held in the Owari district’s busiest harbor. With the help of the British Museum, Canon began efforts to bring the work back to Tsushima City and Aisai City in Aichi Prefecture, where the festival is held, as a high-resolution facsimile. Once again, the passion of the festival comes alive.”
Canon Japan and Tsuzuri Project “Birds and Flowers of Autumn and Winter”:
“Foliage and flowing water are rendered by delicate brushstrokes typical of the Kano School. “Birds and Flowers of Autumn and Winter,” the original of which is in the collection of the British Museum, is believed to have originally been housed at Tanzan Shrine in Nara Prefecture. With the help of the British Museum, Canon began efforts to create a high-resolution facsimile of these valuable sliding-door panels that employ “suyari-gasumi” stylized mist and “kirihaku” gold foil. Now, this work makes a symbolic return home to Nara’s Tonomine region.”
