The sculptor, Kobachi cuts out the figure from one camphor tree, giving it a life based on the original shape of the tree.
The new born sculpture bears rather acrobatic balance and can be called as ‘curious appearance’ at the first glance.
However, he polishes the surface by the agate stick, until it looks like marble. The hard and smooth surface, the delicate details and the unique expression of the face…. 
The finish of the sculptures are just beautiful and yet sensational.
His works are definitely not so called ‘pretty figures’, but are successful in the real contemporary expression of the mature eroticism.
