2016: Cherry beauty (Haruyo)

A figure in a cherry-blossom kimono stands among a mass of more cherry blossom, in a classic Haruyo portrayal.

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.

300: Turtle (Haruyo)

The turtle is an ancient symbol of long life and good fortune, often appearing (as here on the kimono) together with a treasure ship. It is said that if a crane lives to be 1000, a turtle lives to be 10,000.

This is a picture in Haruyo's lush style, with plenty of background features, from Mount Fuji to the cherry blossom, which will keep the puzzle interesting.

This puzzle forms a pair with the Crane (E26329): you can combine the two for a 600-piece puzzle!
