The Hiroshima Panels 1952: Nine hundreds sketches were merged together to create the first paintings. We thought we had painted a tremendous number of people, but there were 260,000 people who died in Hiroshima. As we prayed for the blessing of the dead with a fervent hope that it never happen again, we realized that even if we sketched and painted all of our lives, we could never paint them all. One Atomic Bomb in one instant caused the deaths of more people than we could ever portray.
