Hand in Hand


 This is another photo from the Peace Festival at Ochiai Park I posted a couple of days ago.

Some of you may remember a photo of the event where long pieces of cloth, which were traditionally dyed, were hung over the river to dry. Well, the group was also at the Peace Festival to make a cloth dyed (or likely painted) with hand prints to hang at next year's event!

It seemed like everyone was having fun choosing a color and then deciding where they wanted to put their hand print. This is definitely what I would call hands-on art...messy but fun!

  5. カラフルでステキだね~!見事で斬新なアート!
    こういうハンドプリント、もう幼稚園のとき以来やってない気がする~!
    こうやって子供時代のように、大胆に、無邪気にアートを楽しむのって、大人にこそ必要なことなのかもね♪笑

  6. What color(s) did you choose?

    I thought of some not-so-recent precedents, like here (clickable images).

    Your bottom photo will make a nice notecard.

  11. I agree with Tall Gary; that bottom image would make a lovely card. And the banner of colorful hands is fabulous.
