Liv's wabi sabi images

Wabi-sabi is way to conceive beauty in a more profound way, a way that isn’t artificial or shallow. It is an inward appreciation of a something that ordinarily would be overlooked by those who do not understand the wabi-sabi state of mind. Wabi-sabi signifies the impermanence of life and the beauty within the worn, broken or tarnished objects that represent that. These objects embody the passage of time which gives them added meaning and significance. A wabi-sabi space should be clear and sparse- this is perhaps a way of giving the objects elevated status in the room, ensuring that they are not overlooked. Cleanliness is also a mark of respect in Japanese culture, which could well contribute to this.
