MAZINGER Z SCULPTURE INSTALLATION
We wanted to do an installation as a tribute to Mazinger Z, as a permanent display in our studio foyer. Mazinger Z is a fictional robot from the Japanese anime series of the same name by Go Nagai. An armoured fighting vehicle with legs instead of treads, Mazinger Z is credited as the first piloted robot. His name derives from the Japanese words "Ma" and "Jin" meaning demon and God.
A large model head of Mazinger Z was engineered and hand assembled out of foam board.
We wanted to give our Mazinger Z piece the feel of emerging from a forest, so added tree stumps and branches around him in the foyer. Wooden boards and custom shelving were also installed and hand painted in graffiti style, and models of other anime characters were placed on the shelving.
