The metal sculpture, located at the entrance of the Kamei National Forest Park, is part of the series Apocalypse. The series consists of hundreds of stones the artist has collected from all over the world since 2016. Displayed here is a reproduction of one of the molten rocks on the uneven and coarse stone façade in the park along the walkway. Portraits, like rocks, embody the human spirit, morality, faith, destiny and the intrinsic nature of all human beings. Their different sizes, shapes, colours and textures suggest the individuality of each human life, which emerges from blending and clashing their original function and state with the various worlds and locales, races and identities, past and future. Shaped by time and their own fundamental vitality and power, the selected stones are informative of the negotiation between natural and man-made realities.

These rocks are like portraits, which embody the human spirit, morality, faith, destiny and the intrinsic nature of all human beings.

Their own intrinsic nature and values, such as the sacred, the noble, the ugly, the evil. They blend and clash with each other. They are shaped by time and their own a fundamental vitality and power. ภาษาไทย : คลิกที่นี่
