The maple leaf is another object in nature that transcends itself in design by becoming an icon. The maple leaf is both itself and a star-shaped element that can be used to accent or interrupt a flowing pattern. This perfectly meets the maple leaf as a marker of seasons,¬†tumbling from its stem into flowing water as fall turns to winter. The Japanese word ‘momji’ means both ‘maple’ and autumn foliage in general.¬† Peace, serenity, abundance and beauty are other qualities symbolized by maple in Japan.
