Zen and the Art of Tea

This photo utilizes the cutout technique to highlight color. In this case, the color focal point is the brilliant red fukusa which is a square of silk used for the tea ceremony, or chado. The fukusa is used for the ritual cleaning of the tea scoop (chashaku) and the tea caddy (natsume) before the start of making the tea and serving to the guests.
