Sola Cube: Sakura (Ohkanzakura)
Showcasing the beauty and wonder of nature
3.8 billion years ago life began on earth. And over millions of years multicellular life evolved into land plants and forests. The colors and shapes of flowers, fruits and seeds all have unique purposes and are as beautiful as they are functional.
Intent on showcasing the wonder and beauty of mother nature, Koichi Yoshimura developed a way to exquisitely preserve plants in acrylic cubes. He called them “Sola Cubes.”
Each Sola Cube is handmade by Japanese craftsmen and contain a real plant. The Sakura, or cherry blossom, is one of Japan's most-iconic flowers. In its grand orchestra of pinks and whites, the sakura signals the triumphant arrival of spring. This particular species is known as ohkanzakura, or crown sakura, because it blooms larger than most other cherry blossoms.
