Production Scene

Artist's Message

Katsuhiro OtomoCartoonist, Movie directorBecause it was a work after the disaster, I myself had a feeling of pray and repose of souls. On the other hand, to avoid composed by only those feelings, I also wanted to make a work with entertainment properties and stories, which will make people visiting from around the world touch and enjoy this mural.
In the figure that the boy who brings Fujin and Raijin crosses the waves and heads towards the future, I put a feeling for the people to face difficulties with courage.
I hope that it will interest small children and will be an opportunity for children and parents to talk about the disaster and reconstruction.

Commentary

The figure that Kinka Doji riding on a mechanical goldfish accompanied by Fujin (Wind God) and Raijin (Thunder God) crosses waves and invites auspicious clouds is drawn, and it is imaged that the children who will bear the future confront the great power of nature with contemporary wisdom and go forward with courage even though there are difficulties.
An esquisse (reduced model) was produced while inflating the completed image based on the original painting, and meetings were held carefully as to whether the shaping as the mural was consistent with the one intended by the artist. Also from this stage the glaze test was repeated and the type of glaze to be used was examined. Glasses are used for the eyes of the goldfish to produce a mechanical image.
