The brilliant colors on a sandy brown field are black, blue and green with many accents. The print is beautifully detailed. It could have been taken from a Japanese wood block print. Fabulous.

ABOVE excellent condition. The rayon crepe fabric is strong and clean. Colors are VIVID. No stains, holes, or signs of significant wear. This is an amazing and wearable shirt. There is one button missing on one cuff.
