Plumblossom-shaped Sushi

Ume-sushiJapanese family emblem, cherry

Plum-blossom-shaped SushiPlum(Ume) blossoms have been good design sources in Japan for a long time.   We can see a variety of plum blossom motifs in paintings, dishes, furniture in Edo Period or much older ones.  This time, I took one of those motifs out of Japanese emblems(Kamon)  and applied it to Nigiri sushi.  The original design is as the second image above.
For making plum-blossoms shape, I tried forming Sushi rice into a half-sphere shape and put a slice of Tuna on top.
