In an 1858 diary in Japan, a mysterious two headed bird was recorded, having one black head and one white - it foretold of a cholera outbreak and offered protection from the disease. At the start of the COVID 19 pandemic, the curator of a museum in Yamanashi prefecture, Japan, where the bird was said to have appeared, shared a picture of the journal entry, and after many enquiries from businesses, allowed its use for commercial purposes.

This wooden painted piece is my interpretation of this legendary bird, sitting on a little wooden tree stump.

My pieces are painted in a naïve and simple style, with visible brush strokes and differing paint consistencies. It is important to note that there might be naturally occurring markings and grain, and sometimes there will be small amount of bleeding along the grain, which is to be expected when using untreated wood - please make sure you consult the pictures carefully before purchasing. Finished in a top coat of matt acrylic.

Stamped underneath with ‘nakamura’ characters [中村] in red ink.
Approximately 10cm high.
Please note: THIS IS NOT A TOY and should be kept out of the reach of children.
