On December 12, 2014, RESOBOX Gallery opened its first annual World Amigurumi Exhibit where over 4,000 amigurumi gathered made by artists from all over the world! The exhibit will run until March 31, 2015 and each of these amigurumi are for sale!
Amigurumi (lit. crocheted or knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. Amigurumi stems from animism, a philosophy in the foundations of many Japanese traditions and customs. Animism is the belief that gods belong to everything: water, food, nature, buildings and houses, even technology. As a Japanese cultural center located in Queens, NY, one of the most diverse cultural areas in the world, Resobox Gallery wants to explore how the ideas of animism and amigurumi are perceived in other places internationally.
