    An Adventure into the Beauty of Colors. Some 4,000 pigments are on display at this location in Tokyo. It is one of the largest collections of pigments and people from both Japan and all over the world visit the collection for a variety of reasons associated with the beauty of colors. Naturally, artists comprise a significant portion of the visitors. The lady on the left is a university student from Hong Kong carrying out her study of pigments for her dissertation.

    Your Shot photographer Marc Henauer commented "Art allows the expression of beauty. These thousands of colored flasks are each as many sources of inspiration for the artists. Creativity is limited only by imagination, and I can not imagine the countless works that will come out of these flasks. Awesome!"
