I think that my eyes met a small animal’s inside through the small window of the door in the gallery. The works exhibited are the models of actually existing animals such as a tapir and a sheep, and imaginative animals such as a unicorn. As the size, all are not too large, and can be held by my hands. Therefore, the quality feeling of the smooth skin with a transparent feeling based on white makes me recall a baby. Tsuchiya's works seem to be not in the world “here” but the world “there” like a baby without having become dirty yet in the world “here”. Is it why they look divine?
