About This Artwork

A hat with a flower at the top which butterflies love. If you sprinkle something with the scent, real butterflies might just come and visit. There is an affinity between the butterfly and the flower and depending on the species of butterfly, they only eat insects which are attracted to a particular type of flower. The artist recommends that you wait for the butterflies as if you were a flower, and with a sense of wonder about nature, you fully enjoy the satoyama. Hats can be purchased and there are also workshops for primary school children where they can actually wait for the butterflies.
