Yuko aims to express the eternal harmony that is present among various life forms in nature. The beautiful sheaths of the palm flower are floating on the water. The playful river otters use them like little boats. Japanese river otters are now extinct, the last official sighting was on the island of Shikoku in 1979. This artwork is a reminder of nature’s fragility and our role as its guardians.
