Three Friends Of Winter Kanzashi by SincerelyLove Three Friends Of Winter Kanzashi by SincerelyLove
Known as shochikubai, the Three Friends of Wither (the pine tree sho, the bamboo chiku, and the plum blossom bai) are powerful symbols of perseverance, integrity, and resistance to hardship in Asian culture, thriving even in the winter months when other plants wither and die. In Japan in particular, they are highly associated with the start of the New Year, and during this time maiko frequently wear shochikubai kanzashi. This piece features all three Friends of Winter alongside a large white crane, decorated with shining mizuhiki cord accents. Mounted on an alligator clip for easy wear, the piece measures approximately 6" x 5.75".

SOLD!
