Moribana: A Moribana arrangement is distinguished by a shallow container and the usage of a Kenzan (a needle pin holder that holds the proper position of the line material).
Ikebana is the art of Japanese flower arrangements. It is an artistic expression composed of flowers and plant materials to enhance their beauty. The techniques of Ikebana emphasize one's character, discipline, and appreciation for Mother Nature. What sets Ikebana apart from any other type of flower arrangement is the fact that everything has a rule. From the style of the containers, to the lengths and angles of each stem, to the usage of open space, everything must be placed with meaning and depth. There are 2 basic forms of Ikebana styles; Moribana, & Nageire.
