This was created in the early period when Yamada had just established the style he uses today, in which he makes a solid object from wire and plaster, takes photos of it, then etches the developed photos. A single motif has a strong image. A skeleton tower has loneliness as if abandoned by people and town, as well as the strength to keep standing on the white frozen ground.

Comment from the artist:
This was an epic from the early period of the series, born out of reconsideration of the past. I felt a drastic leap was necessary because I was bogged down by the limitations of my method of over-painting black ink on the black-and-white photos and material.
