“Phase—Mother Earth” was created in October 1968 at Suma Rikyu Park in Kobe, and it consists of a hole dug 2.7 m deep and 2.2 m wide and a cylinder of solidified soil with the same dimensions. It was a major turning point for the early works of the Mono-ha artist group, and it is recognized as a symbolic work in the history of postwar Japanese art.
