Sapporo Art MuseumThe world full of life created by Ainu master carver, Fujito Takeki

Takeki Fujito (1934 – ) is highly respected both domestically and internationally as a woodcraftsman representing Hokkaido and as an artist who passes on the traditional sculpting techniques of the Ainu. The exhibition looks back on the 70 years of the artist’s creative activities by presenting early works in which he captured the quick movements of deer, bears and other animals with his prominent skills, life-size figures that monumentally represent the history and dignity of the Ainu, as well as related materials.
