“I hope this sculpture provides an opportunity for people to think about humanity’s connection to nature,and reminds us that we are all part of earth’s family."
AKIHIRO ITO’s sculpture, made of 600 pieces of Douglas fir wood in the shape of a baby, symbolizes the close relationship between humanity and nature. Wood is a material long-used by many cultures and represents serenity, warmth, and the dependence of people on their natural surroundings for survival. Additionally, the materials used draw attention to environmental protection issues as natural materials emit no pollutants.
The piece’s form and materials remind us of the impact of our actions on the earth and calls us to protect our natural resources for future generations.
