"Treasure Island" Boy's Kimono

Beautifully drawn and painted image of the mythical treasure ship, bearing good fortune from the seven gods. This design includes a crane flying above the ship and a mountain island receding in the background.

A few spots, but still a very displayable piece - great condition for its age (circa 1940-50).

It is a formal kimono, called a miyamairi, and is a ceremonial garment draped over an infant boy for his first visit to the shrine with his parents and grandparents to thank the gods for safe delivery of the child. Miyamairi typically have dark bands at top and hem with a light band across the middle, and in that middle space is a painted design that reaches across the back and sleeves.
