Record Type: concept
tokonoma (alcoves, <rooms and spaces by form>, ... Components (hierarchy name))

 

Note: In Japanese architecture, an interior space that may have evolved historically from the private altars of Zen Buddhist monks, used for the display of devotional objects; then later as elevated seating for warriors or dignitaries. The most recent use of the space in Japanese houses is for the display of flower arrangements and scrolls that set the mood of the tea ceremony, or other art objects.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... In de Japanse architectuur een alkoof. Oorspronkelijk waarschijnlijk bedoeld voor de priv√©altaren van zenboeddhistische monniken, een ruimte waar ze hun heilige objecten uitstalden. Later werden ze gebruikt voor de verhoogde zetels van krijgers en hoogwaardigheidsbekleders. Tegenwoordig is de ruimte in Japanse huizen bestemd voor het uitstallen van bloemstukken en versieringen die voor sfeer zorgen tijdens de theeceremonie, of van andere kunstvoorwerpen.
