This is a wood block print is a special type of wood block print that is used to decorate the window.

They are divided into 3 categories;

– on the window lattice

Those for the side of the window are generally long, like this one (which is to be cut into 2 long strips).  The theme are mostly of the flower with traditional flower vases.  This particular print features the peony and a variety of fruits and vegetables.
