if there is some combination, it might look like this sometimes, laika.
amano's decadence 40%, miyabi 30, yugen 20, furyu 5, wabi 2.5 sabi 2.5

Or, "the pity of things." (I love this idea)
It helps so much to have the images, thank you again, runner.
is furyu maybe the same as miyabi?

my favourite is wabi-sabi
maybe we should make new threads for each aesthetic ---i wonder if other cultures also have that. the only thing that comes to my mind, are the the Victorians. this taste for over-sentimentality, obsession with death, formalities..

it does sound like the same thing there, but it's not.
again if you try to make verbal definitions, maybe you have to constrain them more or less.
but if there is something reminiscent of the heian court style, that is one sure sign of miyabi. also that often means miyabi relates to things that are kyoto-esque.
apart from just being elegant, refined, and such.

although furyu (風流) has some different meanings, when you take it as what the above quoted definition seems to refer to,
the reason I see a bit of furyu in that amano piece is that it can be furyu to undo a kimono and make love in the moonlight.

What a beautiful thread runner! Thank you.

I think in my eyes, the main thing that differentiates miyabi is like you said, the Heian influence. If I were to explain this difference in very simplistic terms, visually I would say it involves brighter colors such as viridian and gold, and elegant streamlined, polished refinement.
As opposed to the wabi-sabi aesthetic for example, which is rusty, patinated and earthy, natural and jagged, mossy, chipped...like an abandoned house or mossy stone garden.

Monono aware and furyu are more psychological aesthetics I think.

you're welcome Melisande

yes maybe more psychological, or more about receptiveness,
not only outside but also inside

Yes, receptiveness is a good word...and perception.
Kawabata Yasunari's writing is full of beautiful examples of all of the above aesthetics, both outer and inner!

one pic of "noh" performed on the stage set up on the pond under a full moon yesterday
and "yugen" is the basic aesthetic that noh commonly tries to exude
