For many years, since I was in high school in the mid 90s, I've had a fascination with and wanted to visit Japan. I've finally decided to put some money together for a trip but it's tough to do. This is the first in a series of sculptures to help fund my trip. All of the proceeds from the sale of these models will go directly into my trip fund. Please consider a purchase and help make my dream real! These Torii gates can be found all over Japan, particularly at the entrance to Shinto shrines. This particular torii as modeled after the one at Itsukushima temple, also known as Miyajima.
