Oh Boy!

The Japanese celebrate boy's day on the 5th of May and this is when families pray for the health and future success of their sons by hanging up carp streamers and displaying samurai dolls. These both symbolise strength, power and success in life and you can see many of them around Tokyo now, either as small offerings, or more like these massive statements. I love the strong graphic design of them and think the scale motif would make a lovely allover print.
