The moon is depicted by the silver leaf on top of the Kanazawa gold leaf base. Torn black metal leaf is used to depict the moon's shadow. The dark clouds have been formed using gold leaf, sprinkled using a special tool to create create contrast with the golden sky.

It fires ones imagination, as the viewer is left to guess whether they are clouds reflected by the water surface or waves.
