The MBS television station has posted a video report from the Tuesday unveiling of the 11-meter-wide (about 36-feet-wide) sculpture of Osamu Tezuka's manga character Phoenix (Hi no Tori) at the Kyoto International Manga Museum. The Phoenix character is a spiritual creature who has crossed paths with the entire history of human civilization through countless reincarnations. Famed busshi (traditional Buddhist sculptor) Mitsuaki Sutō had been carving the 4.5-meter-tall (15-feet-tall) statue out of red pine since the end of last year. The statue is decorated with laquered gold foil.
