|Floral Ikebana arrangement with Thai spirit|
This arrangement is special to me because there is a story and a memory behind it. The arrangement is a complex of three different cultures as Japanese (Ikebana art), Thai (fruit carving and Thai lantern) and Russian (my personality and my mind). It is a mix of minds, it's a path I enjoy to walk now.
In this arrangement I've focused on the Thai component. Together with the carved apples I have used a Thai lantern with a Bodhi tree. I brought this lantern from Bangkok when I was on carving art study in Malisa school. In the arrangement, the lantern is a symbol of Thai, it is a temple of Thai. It is a temple of ART. More, we show our souls by arts. I want visitors to feel this deep message.

Our teacher and a head of Sakhalin Ikebana School Mrs.Alexandra Kudryashova came to Sakhalin from Sochi (where Alexandra-sensei is residing now) to make the show. Was so great to study and to work with our beloved teacher again.
