[Work description]
When we are all just born, we all shine with pure innocence, but as we go through life, we become stained with various colors and become dirty.
By giving birth to and raising a child, she suddenly becomes aware of her own condition, but she reconsiders her fundamental inner purity, and when combined with the various colors she has acquired throughout her life, she emits a new radiance.
A carved wooden bear holding its own cub instead of a fish. I tried to create new value by communicating with the original wood carver's intentions.
