The Ahki concept is inspired by the mythical creatures living in the forest. Ahki meaning the earth, the two characters embody the children of Mother Nature; the Shaman Tree and the Insect Woman. With wonder and innocence, the characters explore the world around them. By interacting with people, they collect a spiritual essence from them that they give to Mother Nature.
