Boys with Red Lion Cloths Returned

About This Artwork

Lined up along the Shibumi River are 40 boys with red loincloths. The same artwork that was in this place in 2006 has “returned” by popular demand of the village. Toasting the wooden carvings with a burner gives the boys a healthy suntan. Men from Koarato Village remember when the Shibumi River used to be clean, and as boys, wearing their red loin cloths, they would swim in the pools under the waterfalls. This time a particularly large “Red Loin Cloth General” made from natural wood has also made an appearance and has become a symbol of Koarato Village. The towels wrapped around their heads add a humorous touch.
