I just had enjoyed a miserable coffee and not the most beautiful chocolate cake on the terrace of Cologne’s museum of far Eastern art amidst its ever incredible mid century architecture that I glimpsed a mesmerizing and massive bronze sculpture from afar on my way out.

A quick snap and home I went. How surprised I was to find out that this piece was not one of the museum’s great ancient exhibits but from a contemporary artist who lives mostly in Cologne.

Leiko Ikemura stems from Japan and came to Europe quite some time ago and now melts Japanese and Western art into one in her works. I think her big girl with rabbit ears fits perfectly into the surrounding of the museum and I will definitely have a closer look on my next visit.
