Transcript of Ikebana
Ikebana dates back to the 7th Century when flower arrangements were offered at altars and in the tokonoma area of a home. In the 16th century it became especially popular when Buddhist teamasters displayed them during their practices.
-Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement.
-It is a disciplined art in which the arrangement is a living thing where nature and humanity are brought together.
-It focuses on graceful lines, colour combinations and natural, flowing shapes.
-Different schools represent meaning through parts of the flower, for example twigs meaning heaven, earth, and man or sun, moon, and earth.
Today ikebana is used to decorate homes and show off skill in the art of flower arrangement. It is thought to bring good luck to the household
there are over 1000 schools that teach their students how to properly create ikebana, each with their own twist on the tradition.
