Ikebana

Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging, blossoms, branches, leaves, and stems find new life to make them speak tranquility..  was initially created to adorn tokonoma, the alcove typically found in Japanese interiors. Japanese floral arrangement focuses on three main points symbolizing the three stems represented heaven, man and earth also represented as sky, earth and man through the three pillars: asymmetry, space and depth. Today, the art form can be placed anywhere and enrich its atmosphere. 

 

Ikebana is seen as more than just decorative; it is a spiritual process that helps one develop a closeness with nature and merge the indoors to outdoors. Each element is important, and each element has a well-defined position. It involves a careful selection of plants, flowers and other materials to create a form that honors natural characteristics when placed in a new environment.
