NotesDepicted elements unclear. The inner flower resembles a four-petaled flower used to represent the Four Noble Truths in Buddhism. (Thanks, Cynwrig!) An alternate depiction from the Sasaki copy of Kenmon Shokamon, Sasaki Flowery Box, depicts both flowers with the standard flower square/rhombus depiction.
