Bamboo River

Modern Art, Old Materials. This was a sculpture in Yokohama's Art Museum whose jets cycled through rivers, fountains, and mist. Sitting in the mist, with water and bamboo, made the surrounding city fall away from my mind.

 

It still holds with a traditional feature of Japanese culture - the bamboo fountain at which to purify yourself at shrines. Have a look at my bamboo set too.
