The painting is dedicated to masters Takumi.

Lexus has released a film about Takumi masters lasting 60,000 hours. It is believed that exactly so much time is required for a person to comprehend all the subtleties of the craft and become a highly qualified specialist. The film is also available in the form of a 54-minute digest.

The documentary “Takumi – 60,000 hours of struggle for the mastery of man” tells four stories of masters who dedicated their lives to their craft. The film featured a two-Michelin star chef, a master of traditional carving on paper, an expert on automobiles and a carpenter from one of the world’s oldest construction companies.

The film became part of a documentary series on traditional Japanese craft and its role in the automotive industry. The skills of the Takum masters Lexus uses to make decorative elements for the flagship LS sedan. For example, they manually process and polish a grille, made as a single piece with five thousand bends, and also created Kiriko carved glass panels for decorating doors.
