The creation of a Japanese garden combines nature, aesthetics and structure. Presents the history and development of the classical metaphors that underlie all Japanese gardens, influenced by Confucian, Shinto and Buddhist principles that have linked poetry and philosophy to the tangible metaphor of the garden in Japanese culture. Creative inspiration is found in the prehistoric origin of Japanese concepts of nature; the gardens of Heian aristocrats; the world-renowned Zen garden, or rock garden; the tea garden; courtyard garden; and stroll garden. Detailed explanations of basic design concepts identify and interpret the symbolism of various garden forms and demonstrate these principles in use today in Japanese landscape architecture. PLUS, paperback wall calendar, presenting twelve textile designs selected from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, 13.00 H x 0.25 D x 12.00 W inches 0.60 lbs
