I am a professional Japanese-to-English translator and an Etegami artist. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines thoughtful words with simple images painted on washi paper.
Thank you, Albert!
Interesting, so delicate and feminine, open and vulnerable yet strong. Beautifully illustrated Debbie!
Thank you Tine. You’ve got it exactly! This flower is named after Murasaki Shikibu, a 10th century lady of the Japanese imperial court, and author of what is called the first modern novel ever: “The Tales of Genji.” The plant represents all the courtly elegance of ladies of the imperial court. It is normally admired for its perfectly round, tiny purple berries. I have an etegami of the Japanese Beautyberry when it in that stage of growth somewhere in my portfolio.
