Stained Glass "Yaima, where lives shine" / Original Painter : Yuko Tamanaha / Check-in lobby on 2nd floor (West side), Passenger Terminal Building, Ishigaki Airport / Installed on March 7, 2014
This public art work "Yaima, where lives shine" is a "stained glass" made with the original painting by Mr. Yuko Tamanaha, who is from Ishigaki Island, the local, and a holder of Important Intangible Cultural Property "Bingata" (a living national treasure). And the thought of "Yaima, where all lives including the sea and mountains shine receiving the strong sunshine, is the island where the visitors can also shine" is expressed with "vivid colors" and "delicate forms" of Bingata which Okinawa has raised.
We hope this stained glass "Yaima, where lives shine" will be a new symbol of the new Ishigaki Airport and be loved with familiality forever while giving relaxation and moisture to everyone going and leaving through the sky entrance of Ishigaki.
