Wood carver- Munenobu Nagata
I live in Japan, carving wood.
After witnessing the death of my grandmother, who had been a great person to me, I began sculpting Buddhist statues under the guidance of Buddhist sculptor Keisen Katsurano. Due to my incurable eye disease, my three-dimensional vision had appeared two-dimensional and I had gave up on it, but with my feelings for my grandmother in mind, I acquired a three-dimensional sensation in my own way. From that experience, I realized that ``giving form with all my heart'' is the basis of my own manufacturing, and I have been active ever since.
