『未来満開』
未(ひつじ)が来る。
「未来」となる言葉。
そして未の体には満開の梅の花。
お花を運んでいる方は弥勒菩薩様。
弥勒様は「理想の未来」を司るお方です。
お花が満開に咲き誇るような
理想的な未来がやって来ますように。

そんな願いを込めた今年の干支にちなんだ
未ひつじの作品です。


"Future Bloom" * A sheep (未) is coming (来).
This represents the word, "future" (未来). The sheep's body made of blooming plum blossoms. The person carrying the flowers is ** Maitreya Bodhisattva. Maitreya is the one who controls the "ideal future." I hope for an ideal future to come like flowers in full bloom. This piece represents the zodiac sheep who makes such a wish.

* The Japanese kun-reading of the "未" character is sheep, and the "来" character means to come. "未来" is read as MIRAI in Japanese, and it means future.
** Maitreya Bodhisattva is a bodhisattva that will mercifully save all living things on earth on Buddha's behalf 5.77 billion years after Buddha's death.


★The zodiac was introduced to Japan from ancient China. The zodiac counts "years" to represent Jupiter's location (position in the sky) during its orbit of one rotation around the sun every 12 years. 12 different animals symbolize each year sequentially, and it is repeated in a 12 year cycle. In Japan, the zodiac is called Eto, and at the beginning of the year we consider the good meanings associated with each animal for the year. 2019 is the year of the boar. Incidentally, the artist Nishi Yuu was born in the year of the money .
