TSUBA

SAKURA BLOSSOMS

Shakudo Tsuba done in a motif of Sakura or Cherry Blossoms on Nanako.

The gold highlighted blossoms are positioned with the blossoms draping over the mimi against a field of nanako. The Nanako is the finest and most symmetrical I have ever seen.  I suspect this is Kaga Goto work.
