Dancing Gaia

Dancing Gaia

Dancing Gaia merges Japanese anime, kaiju and toy art with South East Asian religious symbols.
as part of “I Like Contemporary, but Contemporary Like It Shiny” series of sculptures. This piece combined Ultraman and Gaia into a contemporary, commercial character who is also (against the odds or in spite of them) a religious relic. Apparently, Ultraman was (in part) inspired by Buddhist statues in Japan.
