Art Aquarium by Hidetomo Kimura at Circolo Filologico Milanese, through August 23, 2015

” In Art Aquarium it is the beauty created by nature. The Kingyo is a sign of providence, and I hope that through the encounter with this elegant fish, visitors will have the opportunity to better understand the relationship between man and nature.” — Hidetomo Kimura
