The style, Ikebana, means, “arrangement of living plant materials.” This focused on the refinement of art and ritual flower use by Japanese Buddhists, also become widely used in worldly and religious art. Throughout History... Many Japanese designs are characterized by their linear forms. Straight, curved, or angular lines of flowers and foliage balance the bold open spaces between the plant material. Containers/Vases: If the vase has one single character, or a construct of two characters that have a semi-complicated detail (meaning, a lot of brush strokes), it is reasonable to assume the vase is relatively new, as opposed to an antique, and the characters will easily be found in a dictionary. Ikebana Flowers: Asakura: Dream Most Recognized: Principles of this design is the "heaven", "earth", and "man".
