Pathway to heaven

An example of little garden, a kind of a stripe of vegetation, very distinctive of Japanese style and tradition. The use of curved pattern and walks come from the geomancy, straight lines accelerate ki, the earth energy and make it dangerous, so path and even bridges, are mostly drowing a curve. Irregularity is the rule, the simmetry is banned, wabi sabi is the art of imperfection, the beauty in the not finished, a central concept in Japanese culture and art, only God make perfection, so men in his humility, do not pretend to achieve perfection (unlike western men).
