Published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Gallery at Takashimaya in New York and Nihonbashi Takashimaya in Tokyo. The show featured Yoshiko Takikawa, a Japanese artist.

Some of her sculptures incorporate other materials such as iron. Many of her sculptures depicted herein are those that include metal. Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
