Hata Museum – Kyoto

Japan - 1998

This work, created by the master craftsmen Natalino, father of Villi Zanini, is a decorative installation that adorns the entrance to the Museum of the Hata family, whose history is closely connected with the Decorative painting of kimonos.

In the design of the gate, the door and the decorative wrought-iron canopy, various details are recognizable that recount the family’s professions: the floral decorations reflect the artistic style typical of kimonos, and the braided rope evokes silk.

THE DETAILS

For the decorations on the entrance door, the client requested the forging of 5 bees in wrought iron, behind which the names of the family members are engraved.
