Swirls of vines and flowers dance along the entire length of the cap and barrel. The Housoge floral pattern has its origins in the Tenpyo period, 729-749 CE, during which time Buddhism was becoming an officially recognized state religion in Japan. The Housoge represents an idealized hybrid "flower in paradise" as envisioned by the Pure Land Buddhism of the period.
