All 47 Garage Kit Masterpieces Chosen for “Wonder Show Case” in Past Ten Years - Vol. 1
(This article was originally posted in Japanese at 00:00 Jul. 30, 2009)
Official label "Wonder Show Case" of Wonder Festival was established in 1999 as an artistic support system aimed at helping talented young sculptors to reach their full potential. Artisans chosen for the year's "Wonder Show Case" will be given special attention during the festival, and limited quantities of their masterpieces are sold for high prices to avid collectors.
45 sculptors were promoted in "Wonder Show Case" since 1999, and 2 sculptors were chosen this year. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the label, works of all 47 sculptors featured in the past ten years were exhibited at Wonder Festival 2009 [Summer]. So we'll show you their masterpieces in chronological order.
