This guide presents over 146 patterns from the textiles, ceramics, lacquerware, and enamel work of the Nara (710-794) and Heian (794-1185) periods. The designs from these early eras have an elemental beauty and vitality of their own, but they also show the beginnings of motifs and themes that reappear throughout the course of Japanese art.
