The KAWS Companion sculpture is going to make its fourth stop in Japan after its visit to Seoul, Taipei and Hong Kong. Starting from mid-July, you can enjoy a camping experience with the giant figure at Fujinomiya’s Fumotoppara Camping Ground where it will be relaxing under Mount Fuji's spectacular view.
Measured at 40-metre long, the sculpture is the biggest one yet, three metres longer than the one last that appeared in Hong Kong. The Companion, which was lying down flat at the last stop, rests on the grass field with one arm placed below its head and its knees bent. KAWS revealed on his Instagram account that the sculpture has already arrived at its destination.
