"Golden 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.

A dazzling hawk in embroidered gold with long, outstretched wings! He seems to be guarding a lacquered box. More masculine motifs include arrow fletching, traveller's hats, and more.

Five family crests and lots of hand embroidery.
