 japanese company tange & nakimushi peanuts have composed ‘neko-sushi’, a photographic series of posters and postcards which unite cats and sushi. various felines are placed atop stacks of sticky rice, wrapped in strands of seaweed and playfully placed with props, meant to closely resemble different kinds of raw fish. pink backpacks, orange ties and striped red socks look like tuna and salmon, while the small scenes replicate the traditional serving situations of the popular dish. take a look below to see the tabby, persian and siamese cats as pet plates.
