The remains of houses.(Restoration)
Archeologists thought houses were built like above photo.
A beautiful Earthware had been found.
This one is also beautiful.
The very rare board shaped clay figure had found too.
This figure clay is the biggest in this remains, the height is 30 cm.
A few decades ago,archeologists had thought these earthwares and clay figures were
worthless as fine arts.
But Taro Okamoto insisted repeatedly that they were very valuable as fine arts.
Many people came to notice that the earthwares and clay figures were very valuable
as fine art.
After that Taro Okamoto made a symbol tower of EXPO '70, which is known as a tower of the Sun.
Many people would feel the big influence of the clay figures of prehistoric age in his tower.
Looking this six chestnut tree building,it is very fantastic to imagine what kind of life they spent
in prehistoric period.
