HATENA Chan & Mysterious forest—SNOW GLOBE BOX

The 'Snow Globe', a faithful figurine of the visuals that appear in Keiichi Tanaami's picture book 'Hatena-chan & Mysterious forest', is carefully housed in the center of a cushion with a design of the Hatena-chan pattern.

In addition to this, the 'Snow Glove Box' includes a picture book and six high-quality monochrome prints, including unused picture books.

The packaging, with its pop and beautiful luxury finish, was also designed by Keiichi Tanaami.

Keiichi Tanaami is one of Japan's leading legends who started out during Japan's period of rapid economic growth in the 1960s and has continued his uninhibited creative activities to the present day, crossing the boundaries of multiple genres such as graphic design, fine art, animation, and video, while sensitizing pop culture and the changing eroticism of the city. He is one of Japan's leading legends.

Keiichi Tanaami has always been a border-crosser of expression, and his unique style, in which he sublimates his work into something original through free and flexible eclecticism, is reminiscent of the multifaceted imagination of "Hokusai", one of the most famous painters of the Edo period.

In order to express the world view of the author Keiichi Tanaami, the snow globe is generated under the guidance of the Japan Snow Globe Association, and the leading figure sculptor in Japan has successfully sculpted a page from a picture book through many attempts.
