Japanese wood carving.

I found this photograph which was taken when I was stationed in Hiroshima with BCOF in 1946 , it was shared between my mate Reg and I where we kept all our odds and ends, I had the left hand side but you can see we 18 year olds liked Rita Hayworth the front lower left was a pen friend from New Zealand ,long forgotten , the top left was a piece of sawn silver birch with a Japanese scene painted on it I paid one yen for it now scroll down and see the same piece of wood.

It now takes pride of place in my "bathroom",after 63 years it has kept its colour
