Lot Essay

'All my Warrions and Ronin are three dimensional icons, remainders of certain war experiences which have left me with psychological scars. By giving form to these nightmares and demons I have hope to rid myself of their constant presence.'

(S. Tajiri quoted in R. Vercauteren, De Wachters van Shinkichi Tajiri, Venlo 2007, p. 23)
