Renewal of “The gift from the sea” installed in Uno Station Square. Repaint the center object as gold metallic and make it gorgeous. Also, put on costumes that remind the animals of rock stars and magicians, and make them colorful, humorous and mysterious. The fringes and cloaks swaying in the wind give movement to the heavy, fixed impression of Brons sculpture, and combine with other life elements of nature such as wing and flower form.
