The work conveys the strength of nature’s life force against the backdrop of the artificial colors of the panels." 

"In a location inside a shrine with a great view of the Kiyotsu River flowing by, a large object of art is placed. Using driftwood as the main material and applying a variety of treatments, the artist has created a bold work of ikebana."
