Ikebana - Moribana slanting

This is one of my ikebana flower arrangements, ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arranging. I am a student of the Sogetsu ikebana school of Japan.

 

This is a basic slanting "moribana" arrangement.

 

Just as paintings are artistic expressions brushed onto canvas, ikebana is a three-dimensional artistic expression composed of flowers and plants. It is up th the aesthetic of the ikebana arranger to assemble the materials, choose their most beautiful aspects, order them and endow them with a value transcending that which they had in nature. Arranging ikebana begins with careful observation of the plant materials.
