The Japanese title "KinPa" means a splendor of wave.

 After this work he was retiring from the creation activity completely because of the cerebral infarction in 1997.
 This is the last work of my father in 1993. The title "Kin" means Japanese brocade and  "pa (nami)" means wave.

His words:

"It is very difficult to knit the box with bamboo. The cover has to be fitted firmly with the box. Furthermore, it is necessary for the cover to be able to lift up with separating from the box."
I found the adherence that only he has.


 An unexpected technique is used to achieve this work. It is said to me only the miracle.   Please refer to "Processing of the material".
