Image of Cloisonné Silver Medallion "Sendai Tanabata Festival"

This cloisonné silver medallion has been designed and manufactured featuring motifs from the Sendai Tanabata Festival, which was held on the theme of "restoration and memorial" and to pray for the restoration of the city of Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, and the entire Tohoku region.

The Sendai Tanabata Festival has constituted one of the city's yearly events since the time of Date Masamune, Sendai's ancestral feudal lord, and is held over a three-day period from August 6-8, when the entire city is brightly decorated with Tanabata decorations such as paper balls and streamers that are freshly handmade each year.

Medallion Design

Obverse: The obverse features a man and woman enjoying streamer decorations, depicted with glowing color and delicate skill using seven-color cloisonné. The colors of the streamers incorporate the wish for restoration and memorial through the abundant use of transparent clear cloisonné.

Reverse: The design of the reverse features characters spelling out "Sendai Tanabata Matsuri," bamboo grass, and Tanabata decorations (strips of paper for writing wishes and origami cranes) against the background of the Milky Way.
