Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale, Part XVIII/大地の芸術祭、パート18

Among others, I wanted to see this particular work:
D 015
Restaurant Gives Orders
西洋料理店 山猫軒
because I liked the idea of converting a famous short story of Miyazawa Kenji into an art form.

If you wonder what is written on all these doors, here are links to the Japanese and English versions of the novel:
The Restaurant That Has Many Orders -WILDCAT HOUSE-
