ABSTRACT

In court ritual of Nara period, embellishing headdress that made with the plant, was an magical act what accept of the vitality of plants, and had an function which to share the spirit of the event and to distinguish between participants as the event marker. However, as the Heian period, headdress is fixed as a ritual props, and is had the function as the marker indicating the position or identity of the people who attended the event. In Hananoen, Prince gaving a headdress to Hikarugenji, maybe means to pray magical or to reproduce using props, but I think it was meant to be clarify the identity and status of Hikarugenji. And, Tenno grant the cloth his wore, is an political action expressing the personal solidarity. It means the seeking of political relations and moral solidarity with servants, that tenno deign his worn cloth to him. So prince grant his cloth to Tonotyuzyo, is an political action to bilt the personal solidarity with him. It is contrast to giving an headdress to Hikarugenji and to identity of their relationship clearly. So we can see that the prince has an imagination to make Tonotyuzyo his confidant, and to excluse Hikarugenji in his reign, from the difference between the two Tamamono.
