Japanese embroideries created with delicate silk needlework are famous for their workmanship. In this Japanese tradition, the artist makes the embroidery emulate a painting by carefully choosing coloured silk threads of subtle hues. This depiction of a waterfall in the Nikko region of Japan captures in realistic detail, the clear water falling amidst the rocks, and trees bathed in autumn colours.
