One great joy of this collection is seeing all the invention and possibility in a single, simple object. I offer the chrysanthemum.
“Sure” you say, “a flower.” Well, yes, it is that and a meal and an emperor and a season and a pattern in a quilt and a place and an excuse to dream up all manner of depiction. There are 145 examples in the collection, twenty one presented here. To find more, search the catalog.
