Respect for Nature

This wooden mobile represents the utmost expression of the ancient art of Kumiko, an intricate technique of wood joinery. A series of pieces of wood are carefully arranged one by one to create an elegantly flowing curved surface, the light falling between them appearing as sunlight filtering through water. Its shadows, swaying in the gentle breeze, reflect the deep Japanese aesthetic of appreciation for nature.
