The oxidized silver gives the effect of a night sky in the background. Moonlit wild grasses bend in the wind under gentle night clouds. Could possibly be a painting of the Plains of Musashino- a popular theme in Japanese art. Mineral pigments painted on oxidized silver leaf and with a silk brocade border.
