This adventure cat looks funny, smart, outrageous and terrific. It exhibits the wonderful art of randomness because it is made of different kinds of material. It looks like a recycled toy and I was amazed with the visual intelligence and ingenuity of Clem Chen. I am totally fascinated with this art piece.
About the Bouken Neko aka Adventure Cat
This adventure cat looks like a wonder cat or a super hero cat. Look at the detail of the Adventure cat sculpture and you’ll see what I mean. It is completely geared with medicine kit, milk and everything else that a soldier must have. I have learned that Adventure Cat is a custom kokeshi doll that was created out of different materials like wood, epoxy, plastic, metal, rubber and toy-parts. You can find this toy displayed in Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Center. It measures 8 3/4 inches and weighs 940g.
