Folding Fan for a New Year

Flowers only. No. 3 oyo, fan shape.
Roses and anemone.

A boat shaped ikebana vase brings good wishes for the year to come. May the trip be adventurous and safe for us all. I'm starting off the new year with a fan shaped arrangement using flowers only. In Japanese culture the folding fan is a necessary item at celebrations to mark important events in life. The fan symbolizes friendship, respect and good wishes. It is also used when performing arts such as tea ceremony, traditional dance, Noh songs and traditional comic storytelling.
