Cherry Blossom Vintage Victorian Antique Locket


Everyone needs an identity to feel a sense of togetherness, a symbol a community of something that binds them together.

But when these pink, innocent flowers persevered and bloomed despite the effects of the radiation caused by the bombing, the people of Japan began to perceive the flower as a symbol of resilience, hope, as the short cycle of life and death and its significance.
