Translated from Japanese by

Since ancient times, people have tried to find beauty and meaning in the appearance of nature that changes their facial expressions, and to capture their shapes. The beauty of seasonal flowers and birds, the grandeur of mountains and rivers, and the transformation of the heavens and earthening elephants are recognized as signs of good luck due to their shape and characteristics. In addition, "type" and "allegory" came to be given because of the influence relation with thought and literature, and it came to be widely shared by us. The image of the changing season is linked to people's views of life, and it also serves as a medium for expressing life and feelings.
In this exhibition, we will take up paintings, calligraphy, and crafts from the museum's collection that depict natural appearances such as flowers, birds, landscapes, etc., and explore the meanings and expression methods incorporated there while being aware of the changing seasons and times.
