As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to offer this magical Meiji Period 1868-1912, iron and mixed metal onlaid wall panel depicting a large majestic eagle perched upon a tree in a moonlit setting. The highly skilled yet unknown artist has captured the most charming pose of a bird of prey gazing towards the moonlit night sky, the scale of the bird understandably portrays him posed as the striking feature, its feathers finely delineated and highlighted in gilt with a silver breast and gilt and shakudo legs, his head turned gazing up to the night sky with his enormous shakudo beak glistening in the light, the autumnal foliage multi patinated in the style reminiscent of Suzuki Chokichi,s works and contrasted perfectly against the riven iron backdrop , all housed in a contemporary looking but original period matt black frame. If you capture the light perfectly on the moon the scene instantly comes to life, a very classy addition to your Japanese themed room or metalwork collection.
