Wednesday Wonders- Bento lunch and back

Japan has been on my mind since the Earthquake and Tsunami. I am so sad and I can not watch the television anymore.

I wanted something for Wednesday Wonder, something unusual and interesting.

I kept coming back to Japan as I was searching for something, so I decided to go with it. I searched for art, there is so much, so much. This group of people, the Japanese, are talented in their culture, it is in their blood.

I also needed to smile and something that was light and cheerful, Bento Art came up.

Wow, I had no idea.

These are little works of art that are gone in minutes and so beautifully done. Really amazing stuff.

Bento is a lunch box in Japan and if I was a kid in Japan I would definitely eat my lunch. It looks so good. There is a mother’s love in these.

I got this from a wonderful site, http://www.djdesignerlab.com/


there is a post with 20+Creative Bento boxes.

DJ also looks like he has some other intriguing things to look at too, check it out!

He is a web designer and has a passion for designing.

I got this awesome wave from Alice’s blog. http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blog/list?user=2udpd7cec1v2w

Alice is a prolific poster and has tons of art focused posts. A very interesting place to spend some hours. She has 9 other pics of bangin’ bento.

Here is Alice’s profile at http://www.mymodernmet.com/

Here is a great article at http://www.squidoo.com/ 


all about Bento and there is even a video for making formed hard-boiled eggs. It is called the Japanese Art of Bento!- lunch in a box? or art?

It basically tells you everything Bento. Great!!  

And this is a fantastic source of Bento and how-to’s from Anna the red http://www.annathered.com/

And here is Anna’s photostream at Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/annathered/

Well worth the visit too.

In honor of the Japanese people, their richly diverse culture, and their creative minds.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
