Haiga 947 - from Basho's Oi no Kobumi

Haiku by Basho. Artwork by myself.

The 7th haiku from "Oi no Kobumi".

In olden days, specially treated paper clothes were common, especially among monks and warriors. The paper clothes were light, strong and warm, some of them were more expensive than silk clothes.

Alexis Rotella wrote haiku on paper cloth:

To my white paper dress
the guests
add their signatures.
