Besides, this beautiful picture is not inanimate, but it has a unique voice as if it is telling a story to the person who enjoys it. It is a story about Japanese people, the unique features of folk culture and beliefs of this “cherry country” country.

Ebony cats represent those who like to show off their outstanding abilities. Sharp, challenging eyes imply: “Humans can’t do that, do they?”. Besides the cat, there is another white cat and a small blue bird stacked on top of each other.
Camouflage art reached the pinnacle of perfection in this beautiful photo. Not only does the ebony cat blend with nature and heaven, but it also tries to find out where your blue bird is.
Excerpt from the book “The Lost Wolves Of Japan” by writer Brett L. Walker (2005): “In Japanese mythology, farmers worship wolves in temples, offering food to their teeth to pray for them to protect crops from wild pigs and deer. In folklore, Japanese people believe that talismans with images of wolves will protect them from disease and other unwholesome things; bring fertility, enrichment to farmland and children for couples ”.

In Japanese folklore, foxes represent affluence and complexity. That belief grows even more when people live closer to nature expressed in stories, feasts and languages. Fox also exudes an enchanting scent around people. Inari is a god of fox, embodies the fertility, rice, tea and sake, of agriculture and industry. Inari is also one of the main kami of Shintoism.

The mystical but peaceful image is shown in this beautiful picture through the meeting moment of a female student and Inari in a deserted ancient temple.
Fox is one of the most revered animals in Japanese tradition and folklore. They are often the protagonists of stories that tell great intelligence and supernatural abilities. According to Yōkai culture, foxes have the ability to transform into human form. In some folk cultures, that ability of foxes always brings more horrifying obsession than luck, because it often turns into extremely beautiful girls who fascinate and suck human air. But for Japan, like the loyal guardians, friends, lovers and wives.

Parkour – The art of the street

The image of young people jumping over cars, through gentle fence walls on crowded streets of big cities, is no longer a new image. These seemingly gentle and simple movements, they are honored as an art and art of Parkour.

General introduction

Parkour (another name in Free running) is almost like a sport but it is not considered a sport, almost like a dance but it is not classified in the same group with this type, it is quite the direction of martial arts but there is no “relative” to martial arts.
Like breakdance, hip hop, parkour is considered an art in the modern world of young people. The main feature of parkour is that the implementer must move maturely through jumps, acrobatics … on different uneven terrain. This move must be done very quickly.
Parkour artists consider it an art that helps people feel the true connection between body, soul and living environment. Practicing basic skills – Cap leaps, Tic Tac and dance is the only way to master this art and avoid practice injuries.

For many people, Parkour is an adventurous sport, many others call it martial arts, some say Parkour is a combination of both. Looking at the comfortable and free steps of Parkour artists, few people know how much effort they have to put into practice to be able to dance smoothly and beautifully.

Forging parkour for practice, perseverance. Inexpensive, requiring no expensive training equipment, Parkour learners need only a good teacher and a little imagination can start an art, an exciting new sport. Inexpensive, requiring no expensive training equipment, Parkour learners who only need a light, comfortable pair of sneakers can participate in this artistic adventure.

To join the parkour group, players must be in good health and adventurous. A special feature in parckour is the efficiency in moving. In other words, how to best move from position to position, based solely on the strength of the body and the flexibility to avoid obstructions in the environment. And according to many young people, parkour is the conquest by moving through the challenges that lie ahead.

The fast-paced steps, acrobatics, overcoming obstacles, non-body and constantly running non-stop …., all of these images have partly said a new sport .

Unlike other sports, parkour is not only practiced in public areas (such as skateboarding, roller skating …), parkourers can practice at the gyms, parks, and other parks.

Many reckless parkourers practice in dangerous high altitudes (like tall buildings …). Parkour and David Belle also say that such goods are not recommended.

Parkout doesn’t belong to any sport we’ve ever known, although we see them very familiar, in promotional clips, in an action movie, game or in a music video, scenes of running, jumping, climbing with high speed and flexibility plus a bit of music’s sound are sure to have a strong impression on viewers, especially young people.

The impact of Japanese wood carving on Impressionism in painting

The impact of Japanese wood carving on Impressionism in painting

Impressionism is celebrated as a revolution in world art history in terms of technology as well as image thinking, but we still have to mention the Japanese trend with typical Wood carvings have influenced many of the typical artists in the West and contributed to a clearer definition of Impressionism in painting.
 Japanese wood carving techniques (Ukiyo-e, in other words) began to appear in the late seventeenth century in the capital of Edo (present-day Tokyo) with monochrome prints. Later in the mid-eighteenth century, color prints flourished with the appearance of two masters in this area: Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Hiroshige. The objects in the painting are mainly girls, geisha, sumo fighters or kabuki actors. The subject exploited in the original painting is a life full of joy in the middle of prosperity: from entertainment to quiet scenes.

However, the landscape of nature, birds and trees began to flourish during the later stages of Japanese woodblock painting thanks to the great contributions of Hokusai and Hiroshige. If Hokusai was formally heavy, Hiroshige was more focused on expressing his mood through his works. Ukiyo-e will forever be Japan’s own treasure without the Western trade opening in 1853.

After Hokusai and Hiroshige died and the Europeanization of the Meiji reform in 1868 made ukiyo-e decline in both quality and quantity. While Japanese painting techniques became obsolete in the country, in the West, that traditional art began to become a fever because of its extremely different characteristics and content.
Claude Monet, the pioneer of the Impressionist school, coincidentally, is also one of the painter who had access to the earliest Japanese wood carvings when traveling to the Netherlands, stumbling upon gift wrapping papers ukiyo-e and later in the heart of Paris thanks to the International Exhibition in 1878. He became a collector of Japanese woodblock works, filling his walls in southern France with the paintings he collected.

Through a cut of art history, the more serious the learners’ learning is, the more it is merely mere copying. This is not really a cultural exchange between the East and the West when it is not yet a balanced exchange when the two artistic processes go against each other, but it is indispensable for the historical process to take new steps.
