Japan’s modern art can be Sugei— “Wow!”
You can enjoy it best like a 12 year boy—Sugei!—such as when you encounter this eight meter tall, robo-art monster is called “ANGER from the Bottom.”
← “ANGER” was created by Beat Takeshi aka Takeshi Kitano the famed film director and Kenji Yanobe an artiste featured here before in (3Yen / 2009-03-28): Giant Torayan robot blows.
According to the always goofy Google Translate of the Mainichi newspaper:
In the ruins of old rock quarry outside in the town of Shodoshima in Kagawa Prefecture, “ANGER from the Bottom” is a water-breathing monster whose voice emerges from the, “Well of Wu.” Yanobe said that is, a symbol of the connection between nature and people—like they are lost in a deep in a well of despair.
