JOMON
The Jomon period began around 15,000 years ago and lasted for over ten thousand years. In recent years a host of Jomon-themed exhibitions have been held in Japan and elsewhere. A key feature of Jomon culture is that people lived in fixed settlements, coexisting with nature over millennia. They produced astonishingly beautiful objects, and mysterious, primitive designs. These have inspired many creators today, forming a well of creative energy. Our presenters Andy and Shaula visit these people at work, explore the world of Jomon designs and discover how they lasted for ten thousand years!
