Coincidence

Tokyo, sightseeing
This was made about 400 years ago in Japan and is like the works of Oribe Furuta, one of greatest tea masters in Japanese history, as well as Senno Rikyu, Ensyu Kobori and Juko Murata.

Also, this is like the ones of Alvar Aalto, one of greatest architects in 20th century, as well as Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe.

What a coincidence!

Oh, when I saw it, I was frightened
for the sake of Alvar Aalto.
And now you are saying, that so many other has made vases like this.
Of course " nothing new under the sun", as we use to say.
But Finnish word aalto means a wave,
so, Alvar perhaps made this vase only
for his name`s sake, because a shape
of a was edge is a wave = aalto :)
