The work consists of two pieces.

1: Eternal Idol of the Southern Alps: Whole body (monochrome)

2: Eternal Idol of the Southern Alps: Eyes (color)

The artist was recommended by the Yamanashi Prefectural Museum of Art for "The Eternal Idol," a motif of clay figures, and "The Eternity," a motif of earthenware decorated with human figures, which was awarded the first ever Oki Memorial Artist Grant in the field of visual arts to artist TSUNAKI Kuwashima. These works were recommended by Nicole Courrige Roumaniere (Director of the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Visiting Professor at the University of Tokyo) for the "DOGU(Clay Figure)" exhibition at the British Museum (Curators: Dr Andrew Cochrane and Tim Clark) and the Sainsbury Center for Visual Arts ( Curators: Professor Douglass Bailey (San Francisco State University), Dr Andrew Cochrane (University of East Anglia) and Dr Simon Kaner (Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures)/University of East Anglia), and has exhibited and lectured at the "UNEARTHED" exhibition. The "The Eternal Idol" is the only exhibition in which the artist has exhibited his work. "The Eternal Idol" is the only work in which the "color" remaining in the clay figurine, and moreover, the "color of the eyes" is the core motif, and the "color" has been beautifully reproduced in collotype prints. The works were exhibited and presented at the Kyoto BENRIDO Collotype Gallery from April to June 2023.

Editions will be limited to 12 pairs (two works per pair).
