About the artwork

Weeding the fields is an integral part of farming, but it is also a lot of hard work. The Geronpa is a machine that opens its large mouth and eats up all the weeds once they have been pulled out and turns them into fertilizer. A group of five Geronpa are sitting in a corner of the rice field and their humorous appearance transforms the difficulty of weeding into a happy feeling. These Geronpa can move around. Just put them on a truck and drive them. The sight of this makes everyone smile.
