JAPAN 30. Juli 2006:
The first visit to downtown Tokyo.
There are 2 original Statue of Liberty. One, everyone knows off, is in New York.
It was a present from France in 1867(Hope that jear is correct)?
But they build 2 versions. A small, and a big one.
The big one was shipped to New York. The small one is in Paris, near the river.
During the France year in Japan (1998-1999), the small one was brought to Japan (for 1 year.)
After that period of time, the Japanese decided to keep a copy.
These 1:1 copy of the small Paris version, now stays for ever in Tokyo.
This house belongs to a beer company. Nobody, I ask, could explain the meaning of the art.
