Hyōgu, the ancient craft of mounting calligraphy, painting or other works of art, was introduced from China along with Buddhism around the 6th century. This craft was further refined in Kyoto, the center of art and religion during the Heian period (late 8th century). Originally, it was mainly used to restore textbooks and sutras from China. As tea culture and artistic circles flourished in Kyoto, hyogu became more creative and technically advanced. To create a hanging scroll requires a perfect sense of what type of textile or Japanese paper will best complement the drawing or calligraphy. The craftsman will also be involved in the careful preservation and restoration of precious artworks from the past. Hyōgu is used not only in relation to fine art, but also for more everyday objects such as sliding doors, shoji and wall coverings. The materials and methods used since the Kamakura period (12th century) have changed very little, and they require a wide and in-depth knowledge of paper glue, textiles and aesthetic balance based on long experience. The tradition has also been adapted to suit modern life, such as hanging lithographs and abstract art onto simple hanging scrolls or creating panels to decorate interior spaces.
