During the Age of Exploration, the European powers gathered biological specimens and other numerous rare items from around the world, creating collection chambers known as a “Cabinet of Curiosities” in a number of locations. Hajime Emoto’s works recall this era when people were brimming with curiosity. Through ingenious sculpting techniques, he gives birth to living things steeped in the unknown.
We hope you will enjoy this modern-day Cabinet of Curiosities that will set your heart a-flight.
