Rebirth, Manabu Ikeda
Manabu started work on Rebirth back in 2013 and since then he was sinking 10 hours a day, six days a week, to finish this 13×10 foot piece (it took him 3.5 years). It depicts a tree growing out of all the carnage caused by the disasters, surrounded by the tsunami waves crashing into the tree.
But that’s only the surface of the image. If you look closer, you’ll see that the drawing consists of a myriad of tiny details which capture thousands of stories that were unfolding during the catastrophic events.
