1000: Starflower (Haruyo)

A courtesan wears another of Haruyo's lavishly decorated kimonos, with a blue uchikake, or outer layer, providing space for more ornamentation with peacock feathers. The background lily pond merges into the starry sky above...

This puzzle forms a pair with Moonflower (E11430): you can combine the two for a full-size 2000-piece puzzle.

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.
