Kami is an ongoing series ispired by the shintoistic culture, an ancient japanese animistic religion that believes everything in this world has a personal spirit or soul. Each plant, animal, mountain, river and even human made objects and abstract concepts have its own spirit.
The guidelines for this collection are two: every spirit has to have plain eyes and in every work there have to be a reference to the japanese culture
1) Kodama, the spirit of tree
2) Kinoko-no kami, the spirit of mushrooms
3) Anba-no kami, the spirit of amber
