(侘寂?) represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience.

The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent and incomplete."

Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.
