Mukade – Artwork

Work of art Mukade created by Satoshi Sekimoto.

Shiny, strong and wild, this work of art belongs to the collection “Microcosmos” of Maison Sekimoto.


Artwork representing intertwined myriapods known as “Mukade”.

The myriapod is a significant symbol of dynamism and strength in Japan. During the Sengoku period, samurai adorned their armor, swords, and helmets with its imagery. Centipedes never retreat. The myriapod also symbolizes the army, with each leg representing a soldier. Furthermore, the mukade, as an animal that lays many eggs, symbolizes fertility.
