Work size (including diorama base): W60 x D60 x H55mm
Award: 21st Doll Modification Contest Bronze Prize
Information edit: Sakatsu Gallery
This diorama is based on the illustration "Downhill Racing Cart (also known as Soap Box Racer)" by the famous American illustrator and painter NORMAN ROCKWELL.
It features a girl in a homemade car rolling down a hill, a boy with a serious look on his face driving, a chicken jumping away in surprise, and a humorous dog snuggled up to the back of the car, all fully sculpted with cute and fun elements.
Even the illustrative features such as the spokes of the wheels being obscured by the speed at which the car is spinning are reproduced in the diorama.
As a fan of Norman Rockwell, Asaki's dedication and passion for his work can be felt in this work.
The fact that this work was made in 1993, i.e. 20 years ago, also gives it a sense of history and charm. And that it won the Bronze Prize at the 21st Doll Modification Contest held that year. This is what we mean by a valuable piece of art.
