A general term for hanging scrolls *kakemono Š|•¨ that make a group or set of two or more. These include soufuku ‘o•@(a pair or diptych) or sanpukutsui ŽO•‘Î (a triptych). Mounted paintings or calligraphies displayed in sets of those with some connection in terms of subject or theme. Certain subjects lend themselves to these formats, such as a tiger and dragon for a diptych, and *Kannon ŠÏ‰¹ monkey and crane for a triptych.
Kakemono can also be mounted in sets of four, yonpukutsui Žl•‘Î as in a set of the four seasons; in sets of six, roppukutsui ˜Z•‘Î producing a screen; in sets of eight, happukutsui ”ª•‘Î as in a set of the eight views of a landscape; or in sets of twelve, juunipukutsui \“ñ•‘Î as in a series of the twelve months. Works of the same size will be mounted with the same cloth. However, in groups of three (triptychs), where the central image is larger than the works to be displayed next to it the mounting for the central image will contain cloth of a higher grade than the other two works.
