I can't figure out what that image with the four flowers is supposed to represent. Is it a Buddhist symbol? Is it a reference to Byakuren's namesake, the lotus? Or is it just more bullshit ZUN made up in his alcoholic head?

Proceed with Byakuren thread?

>> No.6229921

I'm searching Google Images for the Four Noble Truths and anything related to them. And I'm not seeing anything even remotely resembling Byakuren's four-flower motif.
Am I doin it wrong?

>> No.6229921,1 [INTERNAL]  [DELETED] 

I was just guessing. Check the spell card notes.

The Four noble truths don't have the symbol, but 4 is a sacred number.

I just wanted to know where the image came from. Like if it came directly from a historical painting/artwork (such as Suwako's frogs) or if it's just ZUN's own creative take on a Buddhist theme.
