Sun Child No.1
Sun Child is a gigantic sculpture of a child with a height of 6.2meters, which has a “Small Sun” — a symbol of hope — in its right hand and a helmet in its left. While the child’s face is covered with scars and band-aids, the sculpture symbolizes that a future without radiation has come back in people’s hands. Although the child wears radiation protection clothing, the counter on its chest reads “0”, which is indicative such as of the future. The “sun” in Sun Child No.1's right hand inherited the design features and spirit of the sun motif used in Taro Okamoto works, such as Tower of the Sun and Young Sun, which is installed in the garden of Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum in Tokyo.
