This sleeping beauty, represents the shape and texture of clouds. This is due of the way she blossoms; simultaneously unfolding her flowers at spring. In the Japanese practice of Zen meditation and due to the impermanence of her blossoms, her extreme beauty and rapid passing; we can contemplate deep thoughts on mortality and rebirth. The silent contract of birth is that we will die, transform and be reborn as something, which in this life will always remain a mystery. 

Contemporary Japanese art; Manga, anime, print, film and musical performances, exploit  all these rich poetic symbolism's as a way to quickly communicate the wonder and transience of life.
