A meaningful plant
In China the bamboo represents uprightness and trustworthiness. It is also one of the four plants that represent the four seasons to the Chinese people. For people in India, the bamboo means friendship. Over in Africa (West Africa) the Bozo group are named from the phrase "bo so" which means ‘bamboo house’. In St. Lucia, bamboo is the national plant. To Buddhists, bamboo is an important source of protein in their vegan diets. To this day, many shrines and temples feature bamboo groves.
Check out the canvas prints of bamboo plants featuring bamboo textures, patterns, and prints. There are also bamboo paintings of whimsical and abstract aspects of the bamboo plant, for instance, the Zen bamboo canvas print offers the chance to unwind and feel at peace with this symbol of peace. Bamboo forests, photographs of bamboo, and bamboo shoots in multiple shades and colors stand out from the canvas of the painting.
For a jungle or forest themed room, a bamboo painting may be the finishing touch you have been in search of. Furniture can be made from bamboo, from simple things such as a brush or pen holder to more detailed work such as scaffolding, fences, gutters, gates, chairs, tables, benches, bed frames and more. While the bamboo plant may blend in with other jungle scenery, it is an excellent source of textile material too. The same plant that can be used as scaffolding can also be used to create incredibly soft, breathable, and antibacterial clothing and linens.
If you cannot travel to see live bamboo, hang some canvas prints of bamboo in your home to inspire and encourage you. If you have already seen live bamboo, these pictures will serve as a long-lasting memory of a holiday you once enjoyed.
