Kagetoshi – flowering chrysanthemums

A dense thicket of intricately carved flowering chrysanthemums of various forms: singles, pompoms, quills, anenomes – all emblematic of the early autumn season. The feeling of the fading warmth of the season is further imparted on the base by autumnal grasses and butterflies.
