Makito 20P (72.7 x 53cm) Made by Matabei Goto

¥1,512,500

This is a mixed media work that shows Matabei Goto's unique artistic style. This work reflects his deep insight into the relationship between nature and humans and the mysteries of the universe.

In the center of the painting is a shepherd and a cow. The presence of shepherds indicates a deep connection to the land. Cows are depicted alongside shepherds as a symbol of the harmony between man and nature.

The full moon shines in the background, and its light mysteriously illuminates the surrounding landscape. The full moon evokes the calmness of the night and the vastness of the universe, giving the work an atmosphere of tranquility and peace. Shooting stars are also depicted in the sky, and the beauty and fragility of the moment creates a moving contrast to the night sky.

This work expresses Matabei Goto's deep understanding and spirit of inquiry as an artist, and is one of the most impressive pieces among his works. It celebrates the beauty of nature and the universe, and at the same time conveys the importance of harmony between humans and nature.
