Penny from heaven
Easter is a spring festival in Christianity to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead.
The arrival of spring signifies rebirth from "winter = death," and the main table on which "Resurrection" is hung is decorated with various motifs of death and life.
By adding a small bonsai tree of fresh greenery, which is the breath of spring after the long winter, it symbolically represents the miracle celebration that occurs every year.

Imbued with her unique view of the delicacy and depth of traditional Japanese art and crafts, Miyake’s works question the essence of things and the universality of expression while seamlessly combining the past, present, and future. Employing a diverse range of expressive methods irrespective of the medium, Miyake transcends narrowly defined categories, such as antiques, crafts, contemporary art, design, and literature, and moves effortlessly back and forth between tradition and innovation by means of a singular interpretation and perspective on the Japanese art context. Miyake has held numerous exhibitions and workshops. Her major exhibitions include, "Culture City of East Asia 2018 Kanazawa: Altering Home" 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa (2018), "BOTANICA” Busan Museum of Art (2018), "Tea Ceremony Fascination– Marcel Wanders, Sudo Reiko, Miyake Mai" Oita Prefectural Art Museum (2018), "Throughout Time: The Sense of Beauty" ICOM Kyoto 2019 Commemorative / Nijo-jo Castle The 25th Anniversary of the World Heritage Listing (2019). "Heaven Helps Those Who Help Themselves" Pola Museum of Art (Kanagawa, 2013), among others.
Her published works include a four-volume collection of works titled Everybody’s Girl Is Nobody’s Girl (2017). In addition to publishing novels and essays from publishers such as Kodansha, she has engaged in a wide range of activities such as serving as a director of SHISEIDO THE STORE Window Gallery since 2018.Miyake is also a specially appointed professor at Kyoto University of the Arts (formerly, Kyoto University of Art and Design).
