Efforts to use local Hanno wood "Nishikawa lumber" and collaborate with a local artist group

The guardian deities of the trees use Nishikawa wood, which is a specialty of Hanno, where metsä is located.In addition, as part of supporting the diverse cultural and artistic activities of artists with ties to Hanno, it was produced in collaboration with the Chisan Chisho no Kai, which is active in Hanno.

<Comment from Chisanchisho no Kai>
I think that Hanno is protected and loved even though he is scolded by the spirit of the forest, who accompanies him.We must remember our original sense of life, our inherent poetic sensibility that we exist without any difference or discrimination from natural objects such as trees, animals, and insects, and have a rich, unbiased and free imagination. I made it with the friends of the local production local production meeting with the wish that I can have it.
There are two types of noses attached to the approach trees (the guardian deity of the trees). The highlight is that there is no face.The eyes and mouth are made from local thinned wood and twigs.I would appreciate it if you could feel the suspicious guardian deities and the birds on the twig together with the fog and the surrounding environment.
