Bamboo is widely featured in plant photography. These relaxing plant images are used widely for aesthetic and meditative decorations to the home and other areas where relaxation are the primary purpose. Unlike bamboo representational images, these works document actual locations where these plants are found, such as 'Hasedera- Bamboo Grove'. These works help foreign audiences understand the cultural relevance of these plants in Asian cultures.
As unique examples of natural world paintings, bamboo art contains not only sensitive depictions of Asian culture and symbolism, but also reveals information about the natural world. Bamboo art reveals the complex nature of bamboo as both plant and tree, useful tool and aesthetic appeal. It's these qualities that make them so ideal for Asian plant prints and today's modern culture.
