“Life doesn’t come with a manual, it comes with a mother.”- Unknown
I had my Mother’s Day celebration yesterday in a Japanese restaurant named Gogyo, on the corner of Brunswick and Westgarth streets in Fitzroy. It has an exterior mural and the images are based on the idea of their restaurant name ‘GOGYO’ which means five elements in Buddhism term – wood, fire, earth, metal and water.
The mural spans the whole side wall, including its doors and windows. It shows a modern interpretation of wuxing (the five Chinese elements) by celebrated Sydney-based artist Kentaro Yoshida.
Noren is a traditional Japanese curtain or Japanese fabric divider used for dividing between rooms and hanging on walls, in doorways, or in windows. It also shows here the five elements as in the mural – wood, fire, earth, metal and water
Another Mother’s Day done and dusted! And one happy mumma here!
