This embroidered patch is based on Tenma Bridge in Settsu Province, c. 1833-34, a woodblock print by Japanese ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai.
Tenma Bridge in Settsu Province depicts a bridge surrounded by boats, sailing downstream with the flowing river. Spectators taking part in the Tenjin festival hold lanterns on top of the bridge, watching the boat races. Through the use of bright colors and dynamic lines, the picturesque scenery of Settsu Province is brought to life in this ukiyo-e masterpiece.
