Brass Earrings—ASANOHA PATTERN—WHITE
The Asanoha motif represents overlapping hemp leaves and is often seen on kimono.
The triangle denotes protection against evil. Thus Asanoha, an aggregate of triangles, conveys a meaning of strength and beauty. Since ancient times the pattern has been believed to bestow health and long life.
We have adapted the motif for use in these earings, which are made of brass and acrylic. This pair is white, a color that in Japanese culture symbolizes purity and truth. It can also mean starting on a blank page, new beginnings, or going back to one's roots.
