    £2.99 Members' price *


    Exclusive to the British Museum, a peach magnet featuring a design based on a print created by Japanese artist, Katsushika Hokusai.

    The design is of a Mirabilis jalapa and a grosbeak. The grosbeak (a large bird) has a distinctive yellow beak.

    A Mirabilis jalapa (also called the four-o’clock flower, or marvel-of-Peru) is a native plant of tropical America. It is thought to have reached Japan via Holland, entering the country through the port of Nagasaki.

    A short verse (hokku) is inscribed within this design by a female poet named Yudai. It says ‘Four-o’clock flowers / thrive on the far side of fences, / behind the peonies’.
