“BONSEKI” is a traditional Japanese art in which scenery & nature are portrayed in miniature by placing natural stones on black lacquer trays, with various size & amount of white sand used to add dimensions. “Bonseki” enjoyed great popularity in Japan during the Edo Era (1603-1867) “Bonseki” scenes often depict mountains, such as mount Fuji, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, seashores & gardens. Small stones are used to represent mountains, shore lines or rocky island that waves break upon.”Bonseki” is also an art form of traditional Japanese culture, which consists of “wabi” & “sabi” (austere beauty & elegant simplicity.) After completing the work, all work will disappear but the appreciation of the work.

Mr. Akira Ouchi, the Council-General of Japan in Karachi, in his speech stated that Japan is a land of unique mixture of traditional & modern culture & the beautiful natural landscapes, with four distinct seasons which has strong influence on the cultural diversity & the unique spirituality of Japan.
