Matsu Kamon Engraving
Pine - 「松」 in Japanese.
Pine, as an evergreen tree and because of its longevity, has been revered as an auspicious symbol in Japan. The Matsu mon designs can be divided into three categories: tree, pine cones and pine leaves.
There are about 400 known variations of the Matsu emblem. Very often, people who have the character Matsu in their name would use a pine mon.
Maru ni Hidari San-kai Matsu (3-story left pine in a ring).
The 3-story Matsu is a commonly used pine kamon nowadays. The pine leans to the right, but this is nonetheless called the "left" variation: the direction of the mon is written from the point of view of the bearer, not that of the viewer.
Maru ni Migi San-kai Matsu (3-story right pine in a ring).
The 3-story Matsu is a commonly used pine kamon nowadays. The pine leans to the left, but this is nonetheless called the "right" variation: the direction of the mon is written from the point of view of the bearer, not that of the viewer.
