IKEBANA

[noun]

“living flowers” - the Japanese art of flower arrangement, also known as kadō - “way of flowers”. It is a disciplined art form in which practitioners attempt to bring nature and humanity together in a harmonious manner. Contrary to the idea of floral arrangement as a collection of particoloured or multicoloured arrangement of blooms, ikebana often emphasises other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, and draws emphasis toward shape, line, form. Another aspect present is its employment of minimalism. That is, an arrangement may consist of only a minimal number of blooms interspersed among stalks and leaves.
