Excellent artistic expression. How old is this tradition and is there an indoor event to show the creations?

I couldn't agree more about the beauty of Nebuta Art from Aomori, JP. It's amazing how such everyday materials like wood, wire, and paint can come together to create such mesmerizing pieces of art.
If you're still on the lookout for artistic inspiration, I recently stumbled upon a fascinating concept: Word Art prints. It's an intriguing way to blend language and visual expression. I ordered some prints myself, and the way they transform words into captivating visuals is truly impressive. Here's the link if you're interested in checking them out: wordartprints.com
