Ceramic figures, flowers
30H x 12D x 27.5H cm

After a typhoon maybe a wife of an American soldier would take a stroll outside of the military base. Maybe she would find a pair of fallen, broken Shisas on the littered street.
She would take them home and think of using them as a nice pair of flower vases. For colorful gerberas she is growing in the garden.
She wouldn’t know the significance of those small ceramic statues, but maybe that is good. Who believes in the devils and guardians anyways. Some peoplemay just place those on their entrances because Shisas look Okinawan. Idea of making use of a broken faith, making them into functioning daily objects is much productive than a habitual belief. And I think it is beautiful thing.

陶器のシーサー、花
30H x 12D x 27.5H cm

台風のあと、基地内に住む新妻が、基地の外を散歩したとします。もしかしたら彼女は、台風で地面に落ちてしまった一組のシーサーを見つけるかもしれません。落ちて、首が取れてしまったシーサー。彼女はそれらを家に持ち帰り、使い方を考えます。花瓶にぴったり。

もちろん彼女は、この陶器のもつ文化的・精神的重要性など知るはずもありません。しかしそれは素敵な事かもしれません。ともすると建前だけの信仰よりも、そこから何か新しいものをつくりだすことは、生産的で美しい事でもあると思います。
