Itō Jakuchū (伊藤 若冲, 2 March 1716 – 27 October 1800) was a Japanese painter of the mid-Edo period when Japan had closed its doors to the outside world. Many of his paintings depict traditionally Japanese subjects, particularly chickens and other birds. His paintings testify a great degree of experimentation with perspective, and with other very modern stylistic elements.
Furoshiki is a single piece of cloth that has been used in Japan since ancient times. The word furoshiki dates back to the Edo period when it became to be widely used by common people as well, expecially in public bath as a bath spread or as a way of wrapping one's clothes.
Even if widely used in other countries besides Japan, furoshiki reflects the Japanese interest in elegant and multifunctional objects, and the thoughtfulness in detail as an approach to everyday life.
