Ikebana is the name used to describe the Japanese art of flower arrangement, which in Japanese means “Living Flower”. This is an ancient art that emerges from a deep-rooted respect for nature in Japanese culture. It is based on the composition of decorative motifs with branches, flowers, leaves, fruits and seeds. In Panama, this art has become an attractive hobby for people seeking meditation and relaxation or just for lovers of art.
