いけばなインターナショナル 2021フェア プログラム


Olympic spirit and peace the olive tree branch has achieved wide recognition. In my country the olive tree is part of our lives since Athena gave it to the Athenians and Hercules made it the symbol of Olympic achievement. For the rich nutritious and healing effects of olives and olive oil the cultivation of olive trees was wide spread throughout the ancient Mediterranean world and today has reached other countries in other continents including Japan. The humble appearance of the olive tree branch, but with a powerful personality, that carries strong universal messages combined with a promise for a reliable life support make the olive tree branch an ideal vector for the message of the Ikebana art. Therefore, I invite all of you to be inspired by these strong and rich symbols to come to the Ikebana International Fair and experience all the wonderful flower arrangements from different Ikebana schools and by shopping at the Embassies’ booths to support the people who are affected by the heavy rainfall in Saga prefecture

オリーブの木‒ Κλαδί Ελιάς( Kladi Elias)は古代よりオリンピック精神そして平和をもたらすシンボルとされてきました。

オリーブの木は、オリンピック精神と平和の象徴として広く知られています。女神アテナに授けられ、英雄ヘラクレスがオリンピック勝者への冠を作ったとされるオリーブの木は、私の母国では生活の一部となっています。 その高い栄養価ともたらされる癒し効果により、オリーブ栽培は古代地中海世界に広まり、そして今日、日本含む諸外国へ行き渡っています。
