Description
 
"Shadow Hawk" Boy's Kimono

This is a vintage Japanese boy's 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.

Beautifully done! Towering hawk in shades of brown and gold is flying among the mountains and pine branches. A green and blue floral pattern creates a large silhouette of the same hawk, like his shadow. Some lovely embroidery as well.

This is a layered set - a plain cream colored under-kimono is worn beneath the beautifully patterned but semi-sheer ro silk kimono. The two layers of open weave silk provide a cooling effect on hot summer days.

Five family crests.
