A beautiful ikebana in the form of a bamboo stick.
The art nouveau style went well with the Japanese philosophy of living in peace with nature. This elegant irregular bamboo trunk has a curling twig and a crawling snail. It’s a highly naturalistic quality piece inspired by Japanese nature. Through various techniques Japanese metalworkers achieve this deep brownish patina.
This piece is signed at the bottom.
The ikebana is in good condition. The vase shows no signs of erosion.
The tomobako (wooden box) is included.
