Japan is a country of elegant art forms and subtle inspirations. One of these inspiring art forms, which can be thought of as poetry of nature, is Ikebana (生け花, "living flowers"). The short video shows fragments of this beautiful Japanese flower arrangement art form, as gracefully introduced and demonstrated by Yumiko Kikkawa on May 17, 2015 in the Central Library.
