jouge 上下
KEY WORD : art history / paintings
Also called tenchi 天地 or jidai 地題. A part of the mounting of a hanging scroll *kakemono 掛物. The upper and lower portions of the mounting, bordering the central border fabric *chuuberi 中縁. In the case of the formal mounting *honzon hyougu 本尊表具, the jouge continues all the way around the edge of the scroll, providing an outer border to the chuumawashi 中廻し (the term for chuuberi in this case) and is called *souberi 総縁 rather than jouge. Cloth for the jouge can contain gold or be made of damask, figured cloth or plain woven cloth. The quality of cloth is usually somewhat lower than that used for the chuuberi.
