Dark cherry (Haruyo) - 3000 pieces

A courtesan shows off her opulent kimono, among equally luxuriant surroundings—falling cherry blossom, and a crescent moon.

Haruyo has added an inscription by her signature: "A smile for you..."

The artist Morita Haruyo studied both Japanese art and kimono design, and she combines these with elements of her own Western-influenced technique. (She travelled to London in 1977, exactly the year I [Brian Chandler] first came to Tokyo.)

Morita is her family name: she follows the tradition of signing - and sealing - paintings with her given name only.

Blue sword goddess
© Kazuha Fukami

Blue sword goddess (Kazuha) - 1000 pieces

The figure is entwined both with a floral wreath, and a rather realistic sword, in a typical Kazuha swirl.

The artist Kazuha Fukami has produced a series of fantasy images of swirling figures, mostly women, some with swords, some not. According to her former website (kazuppo.net; no longer active) she was born in Tokushima (on the island of Shikoku) in June of 198x, and likes polar bears, cows, natural minerals and more.

This is almost certainly a brush name: the family name Fukami means "deep-well", and Kazuha ("ten-thousand leaves") is an alternative reading of the name attached to the famous collection of ancient Japanese poems, Man'yōshū.

* This puzzle is printed with more ink colours for extra-vivid effect.

Stand like a peony (Haruyo) - 1000 pieces

The title is part of an old saying, which describes the perfect female figure: "Stand like a shakuyaku, sit like a botan, and walk like a lily." This does not work very well in English, because the first two are both varieties of peony: shakuyaku is Paeonia lactiflora, or the common garden peony, and botan is Paeonia suffruticosa, or the Chinese tree peony. But Haruyo makes everything clear: not only with the floral kimono, but also by surrounding the figure with a mass of peony blooms.

Simple beauty (Haruyo) - 500 pieces

The modern hairstyle shows this to be a contemporary beauty, and spring is the setting given by the yellow yamabuki blossoms ("kerria" in horticultural circles).

Morita is her family name: she follows the tradition of signing - and sealing - paintings with her given name only.
