Flowers in A Mirror, Moon in a Pond

A profound allegory of the seen but untouchable and the felt but inexpressible. Rooted in the essence of Japanese aesthetics cherished through the ages, this luminous garden invites you to observe, feel, and experience the diverse lights. The lotus, blossoming amidst the mud, symbolizes purity. The butterfly is an emblem of resurrection and immortality. The dry landscape garden is an evocation of nature and cosmos sans water. Even with the absence of tangible elements, our "imaginative powers" allow us to "conjure" the beauty and profundity within. As a testament to our responsibility to pass on finite resources to the next generations, we reinterpret the wisdom of our forebears, inviting you to immerse yourself in the myriad wonders of the natural world within the hallowed space of Japanese harmony, illuminated by the language of light.

Butterflies epitomize transformation. Gathered, they ignite the fire of consciousness, taking flight into the future. As consciousness blossoms within them, these butterflies congregate, forming a colossal egg. What kind of future will hatch from these eggs brimming with consciousness? We aspire to nurture eggs filled with hope.​​
