Ikenobo Ikebana -  - Chippendale - NSW
Ikenobo Ikebana is an exhibition of contemporary ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement. The work is by Aya Shibata, President of Ikenobo Ikebana Society, Sydney Chapter. Ikebana is not merely a floral decoration but a living art and discipline, generally conducted in silence. The art contemplates the beauty of the natural environment and human connection with nature. This Japanese artform is said to have originated from Ikenobo school which has a history tracing back over 550 years ago to Kyoto’s Rokkakudo temple. Before ikebana solidified as an artform, Buddhist monks made floral offerings to the temple’s Buddhist altar. They later experimented with new approaches to flower arrangement and eventually developed not only techniques but also the philosophy behind ikebana. These teachings were passed down through Ikenobo and other schools which branched off and continue to guide contemporary ikebana.
