This work was exhibited at the 30th Nitten Exhibition held in 1998. The head of the seated figure starts to turn round from the slightly protruded chin, creating an effect as if the figure is innocently asking questions. The artist looks at the beautiful posture of someone casually sitting on a chair, and she straightforwardly expresses the warmth and liveliness of the figure.
