Japanese artist Ayako recently created an incredible dragon sculpture made from palm tree leaves, branches, and wood for the The Shimadakara (“Island Treasure”) Art Festival in Urama, Okinawa.
The artwork, entitled “Ryu Miyagi”, was introduced with the accompanying blurb:
The island, where still the original scenery remains.
So much nature,
thank you for protecting our treasure.
The island with the dragon
When it gets quiet, you can hear it
The voice of wind
The voice of the island
The voice of your heart
Lend an ear to the various voices
To the moment that is here right now.
What can be seen
What can’t be seen
I wonder what can be seen.
Located on a hill above the village, the dragon’s body sways and shakes with the wind.
