The swirling bird imagery seen on this face mask is from a fragment of late 19th century Japanese silk garment fabric in the museum’s collection. The hand-painted silk would have been used in the making of a kimono or sash (obi). Mrs. Gardner visited Japan in 1883 and documented the trip in a travel album. Whether she collected this silk fragment during her trip is unknown.
