"This is the piece named “Tiger Gate”, in Japanese it’s called TORANOMON. I wonder if it would sound more familiar to you if you’ve ever visit Tokyo?
I would say the highlight of this piece is that these Tiger statues turn in to real tigers. Also the girl’s long toothpick was inspired from the ‘70’s Japanese samurai drama Kogarashi Monjiro". - Yumiko Kayukawa
