A whimsical bamboo sculpture in the garden

“In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Maymont’s Japanese Garden, artist Midori Tanimune and a group of Ikebana of Richmond volunteers created “Passages,” a whimsical bamboo sculpture, in the garden. The temporary exhibit is on display September 21 through mid-October 2012.

Tanimune is in the Sogetsu School of Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arrangement. Sogetsu Ikebana use unconventional materials alongside fresh flowers, and follow a philosophy that arrangements can be created anytime, anywhere, by anyone in any part of the world and with any kind of material.
