About the work

At Toka Ebisu Shrine in Fukuoka City, which is dedicated to the god of business prosperity,
people took home lucky bamboo leaves decorated with these decorations to receive the divine virtues found in the blessings of nature, such as the mountains and the sea. “ Tai,” the sea bream (made of papier-mache ), is a lucky charm associated with auspicious events.
