I ended up getting a little fancy with my display, adding in the leaves and stuff. So I entered it in the still life pumpkin contest this year: [link]
Four pumpkin carvings inspired by my trip to Kyoto this spring. A Maneki Neko, a waka poem from the Kokin Wakashū, Toji Temple at sunset, and an Oni mask from Noh theatre.
