UNESCO Cities of Design

We experience many different emotions during the day. It is not easy sometimes to reflect them in art. Yoshitoshi Kanemaki was able to show people’s complex emotions in an interesting way with the life-sized sculptures he created. These sculptures are made of tree trunks. Kanemaki designed these sculptures by combining gestures and facial expressions that reflect many emotions such as joy, sadness and excitement, and emphasized the complex feelings of people.
