Heart Display

Post  Kakejiku on Fri Nov 13, 2015 1:56 pm


This is heart stone by my good friend Joseph Gaytan. This stone was given to him by Jim and Alice Greaves. It is paired with a scroll that reads Ichizoku Sankan wo Yaburu. You can read about the meaning of the phrase here.

always appreciate you posting maples-san. I'm so used to having displays of seasonality, that this topic was like a breath of fresh air. Anyone who has joseph for a friend is most fortunate....

recently was listening to the classic american song, Georgia.....was quite enamoured with a line from it....for use in a display


comes as sweet and clear
as moonlight thru the pines.....

spent some time with the new curator for the pacific bonsai museum, Aarin Packard, and was excited to hear of a strong effort to get a toko on display next year in an effort to educate the public. Can't wait to see the public's reaction to the emphasis on the scrolls and something that may substitute and draw younger viewers into to the the interest of display....

Japanese Scroll topic on NHK World TV

Film at link is followed by another on sliding doors.

Begin Japanology - Hanging Scrolls (film contains some recording as above but with more details. Last part deals with making the scroll and then it's incorporation into the contemporary Japanese home)

As Bonsai grows as a global art form, its display is bound to undergo many subtle changes that reflect the culture of the particular region or even of the artists there.

As a side note, Shoji 障子 and Fusuma 襖, fall under the same umbrella of arts as the Kakejiku 掛け軸 as well as, Byoubu屏風 and makimono 巻物. It is called Hyousou 表装 in Japanese.

The Toko no Ma is definitely changed to reflect the culture. I live in the West part of the US. So I used a new product introduced in our area just recently for the wall of the toko no ma called Blue Pine. It has a pioneer/wild west feel to me personally. My Toko no Ma does not utilize the natural light source, so I used a gloss lacquer to help create a more bright contrasting background to bring out the scrolls. It is also very informal 草, compared to many showed on your video.

The story within the entire display fascinates me more than the components themselves. I searched for literally hours in the Zengo Kichigo Jiten to find the perfect phrase to go with this viewing stone of his.

After all the obstacles on this trip, Joseph may have regretted his invite.

As you know maples-san, in japanese culture if you care for someone (like maybe your children) you send them on a journey....
In american mentality, you may have created a "memory" for joseph...Smile
