Mokko Kamon Engraving
Chaenomeles speciosa (Japanese quince) - 「木瓜」 in Japanese.
The Mokko is one of the 10 most used family emblems (judaimon) in Japan.
The origin of the Mokkō mon is rather unclear and still debated. Some think it represents the flower of a Japanese quince, while others regard it as a sliced cucumber or a melon-based design...
There are 2 main designs in this family of mon: a "4-branch" and a "5-branch" design. The "4-branch" design, called Mokko, resembles indeed a sliced pumpkin, while the "5-branch" design, called Goka, looks more like the 5-petal flower of the quince. Hence the overall confusion.
With about 1000 known variations, the Mokko is the most diverse emblem in Japan.
The most basic and often used Mokko emblem.
Maru ni Mokko (mokko in a ring).
