I expressed a shooting star among the sparkling stars in the night sky. As people have believed the influence of astronomical bodies since ancient times, they have prayed for peace whenever they saw a shooting star. I made this piece praying for children who are bearing the future to grow up in good health, and for people to be able to live peacefully. I expressed the shooting star with the figure running as if he were skating while spreading his streamline shaped cape with bright shell and gold and silver lines.

As there is always a story behind the world of dolls, I would like people to feel the story when they see the dolls. As people's wishes are put into the shape of a doll, it is easy to pass on your wishes to your children or grandchildren with a doll rather than trying to say in words.
