The Legend of "Miroku"
Miroku is a Buddha that is said to appear in the degeneret age, 5,670,000,000 years after Shakya's death and is also said to save all living thing. The mysterious smiling face is called an Oriental Mona Lisa and it is filled with enigmatic gleam and darkness, as if it is implying the world of the future.
This work is composed by projecting Miroku on women. Birth.....the continuation of life and the chain of bodies, the privilege given to women only, causes their instinctive toughness. Women have a mystery which men can not go beyond neither by suffering nor understanding with reason. The Buddha that will appear in the degenerate age and be present at man's fall migth be like that. It is fortunate to see mysterious phantom of Buddha through love, hatred, birth and death that are repeated daily in human life
