Flowers in the Sand by Yukihiro Kaneuchi
Bou-Taoshi is a Japanese game that is used as the basis of the design of the series of vases "Sand". Yukihiro Kaneuchi has designed these vases as a reflection of this game. The rules of the game are simple. The first player makes a heap of sand and places a branch of flower on the top. Then the players by turn begin to remove sand; the one who causes the flower to fall is a loser. Not only children who are interested in the sandy entertainment, but also adults. In several Japanese temples the conic shape represents where God first came in the mythological age.
