The Chrysanthemum, or Kiku as it is commonly called in Japan, is a much-loved symbol of long life and virtue, representing the light of the sun and achieving imperial status in the sixteen petalled form, as the emblem of the Japanese Emperor. Japanese Art is resplendent with patterns and motifs created around the Kiku. The Kiku has adorned ancient Japanese art forms and continues to be cherished as a popular motif woven onto Kimono fabrics, painted on fine pottery and art.

The Royal Kiku celebrates the Japanese love of this beautiful Autumn flower in a striking rendition of textured patterns of this royal flower in bold shades of Gold, Red and Black.

The skill of the Maki-e artist is evident in the interesting textures created through raised Taka – Maki-e techniques expressing intricate and varied patterns of the Royal Kiku.
