This fukinagashi decoration featuring the Japanese American National Museum's logo was created for the 1st Annual Los Angeles Tanabata Festival in Little Tokyo. It was one of seven that hung from the top of the Museum's Pavilion Building. Behind it is a banner promoting the Glorious Excess (Dies) exhibition.

In making this decoration we had to use many smaller versions of the paper flowers to get the details down correctly. In addition to the colorful streamers, this kazari had dozens of cranes made by Museum Volunteers trailing in the wind.
