Sorry..but that looks more like some "alien space pod" than a pumpkin. Completely out of place with the beautiful natural surroundings.

A great news! I really love Kusama's art. I will be visiting the island soon.

'Kabocha' as pictured is actually a member of the gourd genus, and is not a pumpkin.

I really like Kusama's art and the pumpkin is a famous example of it. Whether that's a suitable piece for this location is debatable, but I bet its a big tourist attraction, it looks made for selfies, and the local people will welcome its return.

It's in exactly in the right place - exactly!

As attested to by millions of visitors over the years.
