OBORO means “hazy” or “fuzzy” in Japanese, and is often used to describe the moon behind the thin veil of cloud. This state of ambiguity between the “visible” and the “invisible” has long been treasured in Japan as a sense of beauty.
KABUTO was a helmet worn by Samurai. Aside from its primary protective function, it also served as the expression of dignity, heroism and family virtue, later developing into an elaborate art form.
