EMBRYO
 Believing that the sense of the form of the ancients was based on inspiration from natural objects, I attempted to interfere with the perception of three-dimensionality by carving a homogeneous, undulating pattern throughout the work, without the "Shaped like a polyhedron" that is often described as a typical characteristic of modern Japanese wood carving.
 The work evokes organic and proliferative forms such as embryos, guts, brains, coral, masses, and beehives, and the engraved lines strangely trace the sense of solidity like a line drawing method.
