Bunjin Arrangement


This is a type of ikebana that is based on a Japanese interpretation of the taste of Chinese bunjin, or literati. It gives much weight to the symbolic use of plants and has an expressive literary quality. Emphasis is placed on the elegance and poetic nature of rare blooms, shrubs and plants. The combination of materials is based on the subjects of the Southern Sung School of Chinese painting. Therefore, it is important to study such paintings as well as the paintings and writings of Japanese bunjin. The Bunjin Arrangement is not bound by floral styles, and materials may be freely arranged to express one's subjective view of plants.
