A project to install these statues in front of the Oyama Dam in Hita City, which looks like “Wall Maria”.
THAT DAY, THE HUMAN RACE REMEMBERED…
THE TERROR OF BEING DOMINATED BY THEM…
… AND THE SHAME OF BEING HELD CAPTIVE IN A BIRDCAGE.
The scene of the beginning of “Attack on Titan”.
The place was reproduced in the Oyama Dam downstream plaza in Hita City.
