Yayoi Kusama’s yellow rounded pumpkin, dotted in black, has become somehow the icon of Naoshima.The quintessential Naoshima image is of Pumpkin, a sculpture of an enormous yellow pumpkin speckled with rows of black dots. Created by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama in 1994, the giant gourd sits at the end of a pier near Benesse House, a Tadao Ando-designed art museum and hotel complex.

The yellow pumpkinstand out against the backround of blue water and sky , creating pop art like never before.
