The installation "Eternal Affinity" is a unique piece of artwork created by glass artist Yukito Nishinaka. It is located at the entrance of the Honen-in Temple in Kyoto, Japan, which has been in existence for over 340 years.
Nishinaka's installation is a modern interpretation of the traditional Japanese rock garden, also known as a karesansui. The artwork is a symbol of rebirth and sustainability.
The glass rocks used in the installation were created by melting and reshaping recycled glass bottles. Each glass rock was meticulously crafted to resemble the natural rocks typically found in a karesansui garden. The result is a beautiful and unique artwork that reflects both traditional Japanese culture and modern sustainability practices.
