I made this during the COVID-19 pandemic when I wasn't sure whether the Japan Traditional Kōgei Exhibition would be held or not.
While the world was amid confusion due to the pandemic, animals in wild life were living just as they were. I realized this when I saw herons flying up to the sky.
After the pandemic, we are entering a new era. It is now before dawn. Are we going to grieve about this situation and feel depressed, or are we going to move forward towards the light at the end of the tunnel? It's our choice.
