Pick Up Item
The motif of this vase is based on the masterpiece “Red and White Plum Blossoms” by Mr. Korin Ogata, one of the most famous Japanese painters of the mid-Edo period.
The background is omitted, with red plum blossoms on the right and white plum blossoms on the left, and a close-up of running water between the plum trees.
This painting has been viewed in many different ways. Some say that the plum blossoms on the left and right are men fighting over the flowing water that represents women, that the red plum blossoms represent youth and the white plum blossoms represent old age, and that the flowing water represents the passage of time.
The actual truth is unknown, but the fact that it evokes such images and metaphors is due to the fact that it is an incomparable masterpiece. It is also a proof of how many people’s hearts have been captured by this painting.
