KEY WORD :@art history / paintings

A painting technique used to apply metal foil *haku ”“ to the back of silk. The foil shines through the silk to produce a painting called *eginu ŠGŒ¦ which has a soft, subdued effect. This technique was first used for Buddhist painting during the Heian period for the depiction of halos and other ornaments on, or surrounding a deity. For example, urahaku is used for the metal ornaments on the mid-11c Fudou Myouou •s“®–¾‰¤ at Shouren'in Â˜@‰@, Kyoto (commonly known as Aofudou Â•s“®). This technique has been used in both Buddhist and secular painting up until the modern period.
