What does Ikebana stand for?
Thank you Uppal ma'am, for giving me a chance to explain.Quote:“Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. It is more than simply putting flowers in a container. It is a disciplined art form in which the arrangement is a living thing where nature and humanity are brought together. It is steeped in the philosophy of developing a closeness with nature.As is true of all other arts, ikebana is creative expression within certain rules of construction. Its materials are living branches, leaves, grasses, and blossoms. Its heart is the beauty resulting from color combinations, natural shapes, graceful lines, and the meaning latent in the total form of the arrangement. Ikebana is, therefore, much more than mere floral decoration.Ikebana is an art, in the same sense that painting and sculpture are arts. It has a recorded history; it is backed up by articulate theories; and it is concerned with creativity. In Japan, flower arrangements are used as decorations on a level with paintings and other art objects.Nature is always changing. Plants grow and put forth leaves, flowers bloom, and berries are borne regularly and repeatedly throughout the seasons. Nature has its own rhythm and order. The awareness of this is the first step in involving oneself in ikebana.In principle, ikebana aims not at bringing a finite piece of nature into the house, but rather at suggesting the whole of nature, by creating a link between the indoors and the outdoors.”Unquote:This capture of mine presented here is based on the concept of Ikebana:) Hope you liked it:) Thanks again:)
Now, I have understood the meaning of this post. Stunning capture, sir.
Sorry, am unable to establish the correlation
It is the Ikebana like qualities/features in the picture which made me name it as 'Ikebana'...the concept!I might be wrong too, after all it's only an experiment with creativity..Thank you Geetashree for your candid input:) Much valued..
Thank you Rajesh:)
This is a very soothing scene!ROG, ABCW
Yes! Thank you Roger:)
Beautiful and tranquil. Thank you for explaining what Ikebana means :)
Thank you Renu:) Glad you liked:)
And with it I got to learn how some cultures appreciate beauty of nature and humanity when brought together without the malice and mud.
Absolutely! Thank you Pranju:)
Such a serene photograph
Glad you liked, Purba:) Thank you:)
Amit ji, thank you so much for sharing this art form. I must tell you that I'm hugely a flowers, plants, buds and leaves person. I marvel at their rhythm, and cherish watching them form their shapes and sizes. It gives me immense peace and purpose. So yes, I have so deeply connected with this post.And what an illustrative capture you've posted. Simply serene.
Glad to note that you liked the capture and the information about Ikebana, Anupam:)But as explained above I reiterate that Ikebana is all about flower arrangements and this picture is NOT an Ikebana..I have used this term only figuratively here:)Thank you for getting to the spirit of the concept and appreciating it:)
Calm, serene and beautiful...solitude is bliss! Loved it Amitji :)
Thank you Shweta:) Happy to note that you love solitude too:)
“Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. It is more than simply putting flowers in a container. It is a disciplined art form in which the arrangement is a living thing where nature and humanity are brought together. It is steeped in the philosophy of developing a closeness with nature.Well described . I read about its name in my Japanese class but you have elaborate it beautifully .
Yogendra bhai ji, thank you for your kind words but whatever I have put in as an explanation to Uppal ji's enquiry is mostly quoted.
Just like Geetasree di, I failed to establish the connection first. I have a little knowledge of Ikebana from school. Our drawing ma'am was an extremely gifted one, she taught us many forms of flower arrangements; from ikebana to the style that is used in Tagore's Shantiniketan. She was a student of the BishwaBharati University. Anyway, pardon me from digressing from the topic. On a second thought, I found that just as in Ikebana, the flower arrangement is meant to bring harmony with the container and the elements of Nature, similarly, here also, a perfect harmony has been created with the Nature in the minimalist way. Perhaps, I got the connection..:-)
I'm absolutely ecstatic by the fact that my experiment has been attested by a student of Ikebana. Your authentication is my greatest reward, Maniparna:) and I cannot thank you enough for the same:):)Am so glad that you saw a perfect, rhythmic harmony in my capture..God bless you!
No doubt I was like most people and expected to see a beautiful Japanese arrangement. I read your explanation above. Wow! I love that you jumped into another dimension to interpret ikebana. Very cool.
Glad you liked my idea of demonstrating aspects of Ikebana in a different way:)Thanks a lot, Susie:)
Love the photo and the concept ;)https://emierre-photography.blogspot.pt/
