Ikebana is more than a beautiful floral arrangement. It is a direct link that connects humans with nature. It is like a simple and imperfect bridge that integrates life and death. The ephemeral nature of its composition is itself a reflection on the passage of time. By observing these aesthetic and minimalist compositions with certain stillness you will be in consonance with the meditative harmony of the universe.
Like Shodō (Japanese Calligraphy), Sado (Japanese Tea Ceremony) and Yakimono (Japanese Ceramics), Kado or Ikebana is part of Geido, term used to refer to the traditional arts of Japan.
