Hikari shares: ""Whereabouts of God" is an ongoing series begun after the Great East Japan Earthquake and accident of Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant occurred in March 2011. The scars shown on the characters’ necks represent a sort of "Chernobyl necklace"... I painted these scars as warnings about the future, while the twinkling stars around the scar represent my personal, happier wishes for our future. I have expanded on this series here to include characters of multiple races."
"The first works of my series “Whereabouts of God” were inspired by the nuclear accident of Fukushima, a problem that could have occurred anywhere and to anyone on the planet. This is why the children in this series are of multiple races. They are not anyone in particular, thus the titles “nobody”, and represent all people of the planet at the same time."
