Beautiful curious Misaki horse, illustrated on a map of Japan, has been printed on high-quality paper and sealed to a wooden Christmas ornament. The design has been printed on high-quality paper and adorns the front of this ornament. The opposite side has the name of the breed and some information about it. Both sides have been attached to the wooden ornament and sealed with a coat of resin to protect the design on both sides.
The Misaki (御崎馬/岬馬 Misaki uma) is a critically-endangered Japanese breed of small horse. It is one of eight Japanese native horse breeds, and lives as a feral horse in a natural setting in a designated National Monument on Cape Toi (also known as Toimisaki) within the municipal boundaries of Kushima at the south end of Miyazaki Prefecture on the island of Kyūshū. The Misaki was made a Japanese National Natural Treasure in 1953. Learn more about the Misaki horse on the blog.
The original of this drawing was created by me on a vintage map using ink, colored pencil, and acrylic paints. The art on this ornament is a high-quality print of the original art. Both sides are sealed with a coating of clear resin. Please take care when storing your ornament. Do not hang in direct sunlight as fading or yellowing may occur.
