While "defining wabi sabi in physical terms is like explaining the taste of a piece of chocolate by its shape and color." (Wong & Hirano) the characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes. Perfection is found in the imperfections.
