tiny numbers

So many numbers can be seen on the flat surface of this art work. This Urushi lacquer work is created by Terumasa Ikeda with traditional Raden technique. 


It looks like a piece of stone, but really is made of wood as in the conventional lacquer ware.


This small artwork is also covered by tiny numbers. Please click the picture below to enlarge the detail. You can find some pieces around the cube but it's not crashed by accident, they are also a part of the artwork.


These tiny numbers are cut out from shells with a pulsed laser machine. The combination of high tech and hand craft, or I should say digital and analog, makes his works very unique.

His works can be seen at the Mitsui Memorial Museum in Tokyo until November 26.
