From all traditional arts of Japan, the most beautiful and practiced nowadays is Ikebana, the art of flower arrangement. Essentially Ikebana has a symbolic arrangement: a triangle representing the sky, earth and the man. It reflects a harmony of colors, perfect lines, space and shapes. Ikebana is penetrated by naturalism of season flowers reflecting their natural beauty. There are a lot of Ikebana schools in which we can study rules and particular techniques of this traditional art. Representing the spiritual state of man, Ikebana for Japanese people is a contemporary way of life. The colors propagated in Ikebana are represented by its branches: Ko-ryu, Ohara-ryu and Sogetsu-ryu.
