The main theme is breaking through the walls of prejudice. The parts of bodies like feet and head have the positive spirit with sad on their backgrounds. You can get the strong and beautiful power if you move on. The price expresses defined images for each person. They are foolish prejudices. For example, gender, races and so on. The most important thing is respect for each person, originality. Unfortunately, the age which that became our common sense hasn’t come yet. So, I expressed the strength of overcoming the walls of prejudice.

My theme is the strength of women overcoming their past. It is an image of a woman who has freed herself from her past and ties. It was the unnaturalness of Japanese society, which places too much emphasis on group consciousness and cooperation until 2021. That is not enough importance on the individual. I overlap my past relationship with the society. I have no good romantic memories. I thought I had to be the image that he wanted. A man forced me to have intercourse. It took a long time to overcome that. From my experiences of business and the relationship, I express the strength of women.
