A graceful beauty of Nabeshima

Morning glories, rhododendrons, cotton rosemallows, peaches, and tachibana (a citrus fruit native to Japan) – five designs long beloved as symbols of beauty and good fortune – are depicted together with a traditional kushi-me (comb) pattern to present a graceful beauty. The intrinsic beauty of Nabeshima is brought to life by the exquisite brushwork of the craftsmen.
