The upper portion of the sphere sprouts from the top a complex structure of nimbly and intricately intertwining vines and tendrils, whose routes – in accordance with Bézier curves – were generated by sophisticated computer graphic software, expressing Murakami’s high level of craftsmanship and tenacious dedication to technical accuracy.

 

The amusing monstrosity of Flower Matango, which is visually linked to Ikebana flower arrangements and baby crib mobile phones, takes direct reference from the 1963 Japanese horror film Matango, which featured monsters with mushroom-shaped heads in reference to the bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. A different variation of Flower Mantango was on display in the Palace of Versailles’ gilded chambers in Paris in 2009, a testament to Murakami’s irreverently provocative oeuvre that combines high and low art and culture. By adopting a distinctive sugar-sweet kawaii aesthetic, Flower Matango is positioned at the pinnacle of Murakami’s oeuvre, which often comments on the duality of love and hate, good and evil.
