Tongari-Kun (Mister Pointy)
Hercules salon
“Tongari-Kun”, alias “Mister Pointy” in English, is the first work that the visitor sees in the exhibition. It is probably one of the most fascinating figures in Murakami’s universe, based on a religious iconography that combines the Maya culture and Tibetan Buddhism. The figure is about 8 metres high and stands on a base consisting of lotus flowers and a frog. We recognise in the meticulous attention brought to the detail the trademark of Takashi Murakami’s studio. Thousands of colours are used, and it took four years to complete this work. Visitors will note the relation between it and the extraordinary painting on the ceiling by François Le Moine which overlooks it. This dialogue between the work of Murakami and this unique setting featuring French classical art of the XVIIIth century contains some of the spirit of this new adventure in contemporary art in Versailles."

Oval Buddha silver
Work presented to the public for the first time; Abundance Salon
"The Abundance Salon, the first room of the King’s Grand Apartment, is the setting for the second work of the exhibition: “Oval Buddha Silver”. The Abundance Salon was the antechamber of the King’s Cabinet of Curiosities, where he stored and displayed his most precious objects. What better setting to show his “Oval Buddha Silver”, an emblematic figure of Murakami’s universe, packed with mannerist detail? Here we find all the ambiguity of the figures of Takashi Murakami. On the one hand, a meditative face with a frog’s mouth and a goatee beard that evokes both the figure of the emperor and the artist himself who has one. On the other hand, at the back, masked from the visitor, a more terrifying face with shark’s teeth. The “Buddha” is carried on an elephant, the symbol of endurance in the artist’s work and in Buddhism in general. This sculpture came out of a collaboration with Issey Miyake, probably one of the greatest fashion designers in the world. He has always sought to create bridges between Japan and the West and the same quest is expressed in the art of Murakami. “Oval Buddha Silver”, an essential element of Murakami’s pantheon, echoes the last work of the exhibition on the Water Parterre in the garden:...
