Heartbroken ghost of a woman wanders through the garden, unable to find her love, Prince Genji. Lady Yūgao, a character taken from 'The Tale of Genji' - Japan's first novel, was killed by the jealous spirit of one of Genji’s mistresses.
Her the blue lips indicate her transition into a lifeless spirit. She fades away into nothingness, as quickly as delicate yūgao flowers. The fragile structure of the moonflowers is skilfully achieved by karazuri (embossing) technique.
