METSÄNPEITTO "Kamikakushi"

zoom

In the tales of the old, it was told, one may fall into the forest' hold. Metsänpeitto, it was called, a space unfamiliar, the great unknown. Fallen ones they turned to trees, they couldn't move, they couldn't breathe. From the outside, it must have seemed like hidden by gods "Kamikakushi", like swallowed by trees.

Borobudur has since been preserved through several restorations. The largest restoration project was undertaken between 1975 and 1982 by the Indonesian government and UNESCO, followed by the monument's listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Let's get to know each other

The sculpture is about the cooperation between Polish and Japanese societies, which being geographically and culturally far away from each other, wants to get closer. It talks about the mutual openness, about building friendships and getting to know each other.
