Example text

Pandas could change their habitat and still have no trouble finding adequate food, However, now that bamboo forests have been increasingly converted to agriculture, both in the lowland and mountain foothills, there is a smaller range of species available. When some of these flower together and die off, or are at least considerably reduced for several years, the pandas cannot get enough food and therefore starve. People have tried, without success, to accustom pandas to eating rice and grasses. Many pandas have died with the flowering of the bamboos and those that survive are also in danger because it takes decades for suitable bamboo stands to re-establish, either from the few remaining rhizomes, or from seed.

There are fundamental differences between Chinese and Japanese garden art, but it would take us too far to go into these here. ) In Asia there has always been a particular fear of wild, untamed nature, yet simultaneously a strong love for it and a feeling of unity with it. Nature and humanity are seen as indivisible. Gardens should reflect nature, but also provide people with the chance to immerse themselves in nature through meditation. A garden is therefore strongly symbolic. Chinese gardens are works of art in which landscapes are set up, not to imitate nature, but to simplify it and render it more profound, as in painting.

In Asia gods have human customs and requirements and are often depicted with very familiar everyday objects. Thus the immortal Ho sien-Ku is cooking rice with a bamboo spoon in his hand even as he is ‘redeemed and rises into the air’. He can be seen in old paintings with this bamboo spoon is his hand. Bamboo brush and bamboo paper ‘His name may be written on bamboo and silk’ – so runs one of the many Chinese sayings. Bamboo has played a major role in calligraphy and artistic writing from very early times and calligraphy is still a high art form today.
