'The Planet is Covered by Silvery Sleep' is a stunning sculpture by Konoike Tomoko. This amazing piece of artwork displays a majestic six-legged wolf whose fur coat has been replaced by glistening, reflective pieces of mirror.

Konoike Tomoko's wolf trots on top of the fur of its related species, with the light reflecting off of it body in all directions. Looking at 'The Planet is Covered by Silvery Sleep' is like an encounter with a mythical creature.

If this Konoike Tomoko wolf was a real-life creature, it would definitely be the topic of many folk stories and legends. It's a fascinating sculpture that would most definitely be neat to come face to face with and stare into the reflective surface of its body.
