This listing is for the shikishi board as shown. Shikishi are stiff, (usually) square, paper-covered boards used as a canvas for drawing or painting. Seasonal and nature motifs are common, as are deities and zodiac animals. They are often displayed with seasonal decor, given as gifts, or mounted on fabric to create a scroll effect.

This shikishi features two watercolor-style rams - mostly likely painted in honor of The Year of the Goat - which might have been any of these years: 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015. We'd bet this is from 1991. Sweet goat faces, one with curved horns. A subtle way to commemorate a birth year.

This shikishi is just under 10.5" tall and 9.5" wide, The backside is plain but covered with gold speckled paper. Gold trim all around the edges.
