A Japanese Contemporary Large Bamboo Sculpture made of thin strips of madake bamboo and lacquer.
The artist is using an irregular, open work plaiting technique creating a kind of large cocoon shape. It can be seen from different angles and it can also be use for flower arrangements as there are openings through which a receptacle can be placed inside. But it can be admired simply as a sculpture.
Made by Homura Reiryu ( b. 1970 ) from Oita prefecture, Kyushu, Japan.
Unsigned ( the bamboo strips are too thin to be signed :) It comes with a carton box.
Measurements: L 57 cm x H 26 cm x W 26 cm circa.
