The symbol statue of Kawaguchiko

This bronze statue is one of last and finest masterpieces of Japan’s great sculptor, the late Seibo Kitamura. Kitamura visited Kawaguchiko at age of 101 and was deeply moved by magnificence of surrounding mountain scenery as well as the lake itself.This statue is product of the two long and laborious years  Kitamura spent to give this feeling of wonder form.
The vase portion of the statue represents Lake Kawaguchiko, source of life in all things.As for two female figures dancing around the vase, woman on left represents “ positive” and woman on right represents “ negative”.the eternally varying drama of these two opposites comes together to become one in “source” flowing to on to symbolise the never ending occurrence and renewal of life.

Longer you live , more you appreciate life.So as years progressed, I realized that life has too much to offer. It is full of options and contradictions.Every moment comes with a different experience.At this point, I felt need of platform to keep a journal of all those experiences for reference.This is how this blog came into picture. I prefer pictures as I am too lazy to type.But truth is that I find it difficult to express most of time.Here pictures come to my rescue. Essentially , this blog is a journal of my experiments with life.But then I found that it is taste of liquor of life which motivates me. -:)
