"Every animal, every insect and humankind are all brothers since a long long time ago." Kenji Miyazawa, a great Japanese poet wrote this on his letter which expresses his thinking that a human being must live as a life of natural creation in nature.
He was born in 1896 when great Tsunami occured by a earthquake in Sanriku region. He passed away in 1933 when a great earthquake occured off Sanriku region. On the 3rd of November(3/11) of this year (1933) a famous poem "Ame ni mo makezu" was written on a small black notebook.

Not knowing whether it may be a destiny of number, a great earthquake occured on the 11th of March(11/3). In the face of this terrible sight, we cannot stop praying for the people and nature damaged by this disaster.

"What can we do?" nine artists asked and took small action to support for reconstruction with a big desire that children's future becomes brilliant and filled with a lot of hopes.
In this charity exhibition for Higashi-Nihon Earthquake, we donate all profits to children in a stricken area through "Executive committee of Japanese songs", Asahi Shimbun, Asahi Shimbun Social Welfare Organizaion and Foundation of Bellmark for Education Aid.
