Designer Yuma Kano's metal screw art celebrates her Japanese heritage and takes inspiration from the nation's thriving industries, that have kept Japan's economy consistent, even in times of hardship. Despite of being known for its countless innovations, Japan has had its share of economic downfalls throughout history but has always been saved by its auto, glass and metal industries, something all Japanese citizens are proud to recall.

Yuma Kano's impressive art installation is made up of 36445 individual screws and is jewel-like in its visual aesthetic. This metal screw art is textural and is made up of silver, grey and gold-toned hardware accessories that sparkle like Japan's economic jewels.

The piece is on display at the Mannenbashi Park Building, in the city of Hamamatsu. The impressive art installation is reflective of Japan's "industrial strength" and celebrates the nation's history of innovation.
