THE DESIGN: Shirobei Akiyama, a Japanese doctor who practiced martial arts, stayed in China to study traditional medicine and fighting techniques. Back in Japan he didn't have the desired success and he retired in meditation for one hundred days. During a heavy snowfall he noticed that the branches of large, strong trees such as oak and cherry had snapped under the weight of the snow. Only one tree had resisted: the willow. Its supple branches bent and let the snow fall. Akiyama therefore had the intuition not to resist the reality of the facts. Compliance does not mean surrender. Willow with its flexibility drops snow and, having freed itself from its weight, returns to its original shape. If he wanted to resist, he would waste a lot of energy in a hopeless fight (he can never stop the snow). You bend your body and mind, and only then can you get back up.

L'arte, secondo me, ha un enorme potere: ti prende, ti guida verso un altrove per poi riportarti a casa più consapevole e cosciente. Questo è quello che questo salice ha fatto per me in un periodo non facile. L'arte ci parla, se sappiamo ascoltarla.
Grazie per avermi regalato questa opportunità.

Materiali eccellenti.
