Sanrio is celebrating 20 years of their Pom Pom Purin character with an exhbition full of artwork and Purin-related goods from the past two decades. And they've even invited Japanese sofubi artist, Ayako Takagi - designer of Uamou - to customize a ceramic sculpture of the yellow dog with a beret. She's applied an illustration of Uamou and Boo floating over a mountain range below, the stars and cosmic dust above. Check out more of the ehibition here.
