Things Japanese - A Calender

Laurent brought back this desk calender from Japan. Its the work of YABUUCHI Satoshi, who uses traditional techniques to create his wood sculptures. They reflect many of the values and traditions that Japan has forgotten in an attempt to be more Western.

Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.

A visit to his website reveals some really lovely carvings as well as some major bronze works he's done for public display. Apparently the little boy with the antlers has something to do with the sacred deer that roam through the streets and parks of Nara.
