Sakura Ogi Menuki - M029
This made in Japan Menuki features cherry blossoms on a partially folded fan. Cherry blossoms, or Sakura in Japanese, are the small, delicate pink flowers of the cherry blossom trees. The springtime bloom is a wonderful spectacle but relatively brief. After only two weeks, they drop to the ground and wither, falling like light pink snowflakes. Cherry blossoms symbolizes the brilliance, fragility and transience of life. The symbolic of the Sakura was of the utmost importance in the Samurai culture, Samurai considering their life as fragile and ephemere as the Sakura.
