Wasabi in Art
Tying up with the wasabi post a couple of days ago, here’s some photos of art I found among the wasabi plantations fields in the Nagano prefecture farm I visited. Not exactly the most stellar representations of the human form, but I love the little detail of the wasabi root. I can think of few root cultivars that are better suited for an art career than the wasabi. I’m sure that if Tom Robbins had seen these before he wrote Jitterbug Perfume, the book would have been about wasabi instead of beetroot!
