The rhombus can be seen adorning Jōmon-period pottery and Heian-period clothing, indicating the long and profound history of the shape. The Japanese word for rhombus is similar to that of the water plant Trapa japonica Flerow, which has strong reproductive capabilities. Over time, the shape evolved to symbolize prosperity for descendants and good health. A Vermilion red floral vase in the picture, painted with golden rhombus patterns, is elegant and stylish, even when displayed alone.
