Object of the Month: Tokonoma
The tokonoma, an alcove in a traditional Japanese home for displaying objects of art such as hanging scrolls, pottery, and flower arrangements, serves as a focal point of the room and a meditative space. Explore the tokonoma in the Art of Asia galleries with docent Linnéa Storm who is also a professor of Ikenobo, the oldest Japanese school of Ikebana, the art of fresh flower arranging.
