Considering these images, this is:

A finely embroidered Japanese tapestry with brocade border, circa 1900s Meiji period. The tapestry depicts, in a rather realistic style, dragons in the clouds. Within the landscape, groups of dragons are hunting.

The tapestry was done entirely with different techniques of embroidery and it shows the hunting scene in the natural setting with astonishing details and dimensional sense. This type of embroidery panels was made to meet the demand of the western market during the exposition period at the beginning of 20th century, when Japanese art from Meiji period took the west by storm and inspired awes and imagination.

This handmade Silk Art is a completely natural form of art. No glues, paint or machinery, just silk, vegetable dyes and a needle. Compared to prints and paintings, silk artwork has a nearly 3 dimensions look and very high value

Not signed.
