Everything about "Egrets Amongst Lotuses" is timeless and delicate, particularly the fine paper, soft colors, and detailed brushstrokes. The painting is signed Kyokata and dates to the Edo Period, but style of painting is reminiscent of the 17th-century Rinpa School - a prominent school of Japanese painting. The term byobu means “wind wall” and as the name suggests, painted folding screens were originally used in Japanese homes to block drafts of air.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
