Ban Mian Cup Classic Pair (Polkadot)
“A polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colourful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots can’t stay alone; like the communicative life of people, two or three polka-dots become movement...” — Yayoi Kusama
