The project originates from a kind of Japanese traditional dance. In many Asian cultures, lion has always been a symbol of power. The workshop entitled "lionmask" has been conducted in Japan. It aims to revive traditional customs in this brand new modern society. The artist will prepare some paper-made stuffs such as used paper boxes and second-hand magazines for children participating. The children can cut these stuffs and create the image of the guardian angle (an extended meaning of lion) in their own minds. Finally, the children will wear their works, trying to gain power from the guardian angle they create, and pick up a place they like to be taken a picture.
