Artist's Description

Japan was hit by an enormous earthquake on March 11, 2011, that triggered a deadly 23-foot tsunami in the country’s north.

The giant waves deluged cities and rural areas alike, sweeping away cars, homes, buildings, a train, and boats, leaving a path of death and devastation in its wake. Video footage showed cars racing away from surging waves.

The United States Geological Survey reported the earthquake and on the Monday revised its magnitude from 8.9 to 9.0, which is the largest in Japan’s history. The earthquake struck about 230 miles northeast of Tokyo.

As of June, tens of thousands of people were still in temporary shelters and over 24,000 were confirmed dead or missing.

This piece was inspired by the tragic images from the devastating and tragic events, and it is dedicated in honour of the 24,000 people who are still missing and who have died. May Japan find peace in the rebuilding process, and may the lives of those lost, be forever remembered.

50% of all proceeds received in sales of this piece will be donated to Red Cross Japan.
