Today I created many glass art pieces that I called Komasui. I forgot the elapse of time as I extremely enjoyed making them. While I listened to music played by Mr. Idaki Shin at the Legends of Koguryo Rediscovered concert held in Kyoto on the 15th December, I was greatly moved by its historic and romantic sound that was combined with my poem entitled “My dear princess, Could you hear my voice?”. This music was perfectly matched to the Komasui art pieces. In my poem a Koguryo person had waited over one thousand years to meet the soul of his princess again. He could wait this long period of time as he knew the moment of glory would surely come. This story touched my heart and tears came up in my eyes. The statue of Koguryo that was newly added to an exhibit at my gallery was covered with clays of the land of Koguryo. It had been buried underground for about two thousand years and now it has shown up here. I felt these stories well demonstrated a great romanticism of history around the Legends of Koguryo Rediscovered. This was more real to me than the actual world and I was connected to the world of eternity to pave a way for global peace.
