"Hina-Matsuri" literally translates to "Doll's Festival", but symbolically equates to Girls' Festival. It happens each year on the third of March, and not only marks a change of season, but also is a day of celebration for the nurture of girls and their future happiness. The display of special dolls during this festival is an age-old tradition - and the two most important dolls are depicted here in this artwork.
The peach blossoms portrayed in the tapestry also have significance. Traditionally, March 3 was known as the "Peach" seasonal holiday, and peach blossoms are said to have the power to ward off evil sipirits … which surely can't be a bad thing!
