Isamu Noguchi

I cannot believe this sculpture but it must be true it is an amazment.

Cool designer Isamu Noguchi fountain Japanese American Isamu Noguchi (IsamuNoguchi ,1904-1988) was the most famous sculptors of the 20th century, is one of the earliest attempts to combine sculpture and landscape design people. Isamu Noguchi once said; “I like to think the sculpture garden as a space.” He devoted his whole life with outdoor sculpture ways of shaping the land.

Mitsutoshi Kudo

Another Ice sculpture that I have come across on my journey of researching 😛 Temperatures in some parts of japan can drop down quite low so when these popular ice sculpture competition comes along they work all around the clock to finish them before they melt and have time for everyone else to see.

Motohiko Odani

However creepy this sculpture is, you can see that it has meaning to it. This reminds me of some of the stories that anime and manga have told about souls floating etc. This reminds me the souls out of the anime I have watched. It looks as though this person has just left it’s body. Mothohiko Odani has created a very clever sculpture.

天壇大佛 Tian Tan Buddha

The Big Buddha (天壇大佛, Tian Tan Buddha) on Lantau island is such a lovely place to visit when your in HK. I went there when I was 5-6 years old and remember me and my sister asking our dad to carry us up the 1000 steps that lay before this huge Buddha.  This isn’t one of my photo’s as they are locked in a cupboard somewhere (if I find them I shall be sure to scan them in and upload them). This isn’t just a sculpture as there is a temple underneath the Buddha where you can pray and light your incense. I am definitely in love with this sculpture and the fact that it is of the Buddhist religion and it’s up high in the open gives a heavenly feel when your actually there and climbing all total 1000 steps to heaven 😀
