This dish depicts a cherry tree (sakuragi) whose flower-laden branches are the centerpiece while the sliver of a trunk and roots appear on the left edge. The sakura blossoms are delicately depicted in an iron-red overglaze. The flowers’ various positions (facing out and downward) and stages of maturity (bud and full bloom) enhance the naturalism and dynamism of the image.
