Things that are considered Wabi-Sabi  are often rough, decayed, and broken down by time and use. Wabi-Sabi is often described as the beauty of imperfection or incompleteness, however it may be more appropriate to consider it as the  beauty of nature, or perhaps natural effects.

If you ask a Western individual what Wabi Sabi is, her definition will likely describe antique furniture and rusty patinas.   Interestingly, ask a Japanese person the same question, and her answer will focus on emotions, such as the momentary peace of solitude when a shadow is cast against the floor, or those impermanent, quiet moments in the rain as rays of light begin to penetrate the clouds.
