Artist's Description

I am solidary with Japanese people.When I visited Huntington Library and Botanical Garden in Sierra Madre second time, I saw there many japanese people in Japanese Garden. We all smiled them, to give courage and strenght as this place is giving us. It is spring in Los Angeles now. Occupying nine acres on the slopes of a canyon, this is one of America’s oldest, most elaborate, and gracefully matured Japanese gardens. A five-room house, pagodas and lanterns, and many mature plants were moved to the site from a commercial tea garden in Pasadena in 1912. A walled courtyard containing a rock and sand garden and a bonsai exhibition area was added in 1968. The garden boasts several beautiful forms of Japanese red pine, handsome spreading junipers, large cycads, arbors of wisteria, and thirty-foot-high sweet olives.
