Takejiro Hasegawa

Form of fertility


It seems that human beings have been born in this land and have followed the history of evolution and development for a long time since they began to build what seems to be civilization, but the vitality of human beings themselves has changed drastically. can not see.

Rather, looking at the recent trends such as environmental destruction, our civilization may be definitely degenerating.

We are embraced by the earth, there are many species that must coexist, and we live by enjoying them.


Ancient people have lived without forgetting to pray and thank for the abundance of daily food.

It's not just a practice, it's a painful feeling, and it's not hard to imagine that it was a natural reaction hidden in physical ability.


This is the reason why worship, worship, festivals, and politics are all read as the same "festival."


This time, in this chaotic era, a form of praying for a good harvest appears with Mr. Takejiro's sensibility and Ichibosai's skill.

Mr. Takejiro's favorite shape is an ancient shape. It is also a switch that awakens what is important to us living in the present age.
