Aiming and being aimed, Fierce Animals
原ももこ | Hara Momoko
Nagoya Castle is not a castle built for warfare. However, there are many devices for fighting. I designed these works to introduce how these devices were to be utilized during a battle by using animals such as cocks, tigers, and leopards that appear in the screen and wall paintings in Honmaru Goten Palace. The works are designed as capsule toys and made of ceramic. The animals are in the same posture as in the paintings, but they are armed. It would be my pleasure if not only those who like castle but also people of wide generations could notice the charms of Nagoya Castle through these works.
