Description A woven bamboo sculpture in a basket (ikebana) form named "Dragonfly" by Japanese bamboo artist Fujinuma Noboru (b. 1945) circa 2003. Constructed from Nemagari dwarf bamboo, using techniques such as open work free style plaiting, hexagonal plaiting and wrapping, the piece shows an open body with irregular openings supported by three legs. The thicker wrapping around the mouth rim is reminiscent of the shape of the dragonfly eye. Singed "Noboru". Originally purchased from Tai Modern, Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2003.
Fujinuma Noboru was born in Otawara, Tochigi Prefecture. He studied under Yagisawa Keizo in 1976. In 2002, he was named a Living National Treasure by Japanese Government.
A nearly identical piece is illustrated on page 560, plate 240 in the book "Baskets Masterpieces of Japanese Bamboo Art 1850-2015".
