About the artwork

A giant herb garden in the shape of a human, Herbman. Each of the body parts was planted with medicinal herbs grown in Echigo-Tsumari believed to affect that body part. Various teas and dishes made from medicinal herbs growing naturally in the Tsumari area were offered at the medicinal herb caf? constructed from a renovated container. A variety of workshops were held during the exhibition period. Money collected by the project was donated to help build play areas for children in developing countries. It is expected that the project will continue to develop with Herbman traveling to other locations. ]]
