Weekly Photo Challenge: Express Yourself

<This post contains 2 photos>

This week’s theme is Express Yourself – problem is that I have been very busy lately so that I did not have any chance to express myself as good as I would have like in the blog.

The first picture was taken in the Towel Museum of Shinkoku.CIMG5490

The violinist is expressing himself with his skills.

In fact, the figure is made of towels – the museum is expressing an art which they are capable of doing using their materials for towels.

I took this picture trying to express how a small show piece can be like given the lighting condition.CIMG5483

The second picture was taken in the same trip when we first landed at an airport not far from Shinkoku, Japan.

We were happy to see that a female artist was playing a musical instrument which is like the Chinese instrument GuZheng – an instrument that my wife has been playing for years.

This artist does have a lot of talent when expressing herself with the instrument.

  1. Two very interesting images, Michael šŸ™‚
    How fascinating that the violin player is formed out of towels! I am very interested in textile art but I have never seen a towel sculpture before šŸ™‚
    The Japanese string player looks so elegant. In the city near to us we have watched a young woman playing the Chinese instrument that is similar to this … a beautiful and quite haunting sound, lovely.

    • The museum exhibits a lot towel arts, it was the first time I have been to such a type of museum. The sound of the instrument is quite familiar to me – my wife practices a similar but more complicated instrument ( with more strings)!

  2. What an amazing instrument. I can just imagine how beautiful this sounds when played. Thank you for this lovely post…
    Take care and happy blogging to ya, from Laura ~
