クモの巣 – Kumo no Su

 


クモの巣 – Kumo no Su

Originally uploaded by SOFennell

It’s really te-kumo shibori – that’s the term – probably centuries old. I wanted to know what the kanji was for it, and only found クモ which refers to the spider or spidery things.

巣・su is the term for web, net, gossamer or cobweb.

My own example is a very loose interpretation of kumo and it has been manipulated and dyed over several times making it a little more cloudy or smoky (another kumo – 雲) .
