MAN-E-NEWS// The “Mystery Code” series from Uamou x Minoru Takagi…


Between the gaps of the universe a hidden code flows mysteriously, connecting space and time. Its entirety cannot be grasped by mere mortals but every once in a while parts of the code find a way to leave an imprint on the elements… These are the unfortunate Uamou that have been struck by this mysterious force. Carrying the mark of the universe their masks hide a deeper meaning that will take an eternity for us to uncover, nonetheless it is important to remember that we should never lose the courage in understanding the ultimate truth…”

Uamou have once again teamed up with master jeweller Minoru Takagi for the release of their latest round copper-masked sofubi, the “Mystery Code” Uamou! Standing at around 3″ tall, the sand-filled, clear cast vinyl figure have each been given a unique, hand embellished mask from the artist, coming complete with beautiful splashes of silver along with expertly set sapphire and ruby stones. Limited to an edition of 40 pieces priced at just 8,000yen ($65) each plus shipping, the “Mystery Code” Uamous can be found in their dedicated online store right here….
