Kao Nashi / No Face
In the old days my neighbor told me that there would sometimes be a single silkworm amongst ten thousand that did not have the markings on it's forehead.
In my ignorance, I'd failed to realise that Kao-nashi of Studio Ghibli's 'Spirited Away' is a silkworm. The symbolism is really interesting. by Jun 16
