Tetsutaro Abe 

"Debuneco"
A white fat cat is very fulled with lots lots of happiness!!


plaster, size : w.740 d.760 h.820mm  Kochi Prefectural exhibition in 2014

A white "fat cat" is a metamorphose from the idea of Tetsutaro Abe.
Its very typical that many Japanese statues used to be a quite gentle Bodhisattva.

He has tried to make another type, that looks spiteful but involved highly goodness,
and finally
he found fat cat was very funny and friendly modern Bodhisattva.

It looks very lazy, mischievous, and cute as you feel for your neighbors who have lovely nature of human-kind. At the same time, it shows all bad features of us like bad boys and girls, whereas we are able to trust our goodness, too. It is a satire on modern human society!

On the other hands, his women statues express his perfect dream on beauty. He thinks
we have both parts, good and bad, so he tries to get good balance in his heart through his artworks.
