Event Description

I'm from the city that is famous for Mt. Fuji.
I really like that mountain, and dinosaurs as well. 
Both have special meaning: "power", "greatness" and "specialty." 
The work titled "X-don" means "tooth of the unknown." 
With paleontological research the whole body of a dinosaur can be restored from just the fossil of one tooth. I have questions about how that works. Human beings can't know everything. We can only work from one part by imagining a thing's whole. Today's images of dinosaurs are one of the possibilities we can consider from a hypothesis. 

The paleontologist presents just one possibility from the limited viewpoint of a selection of relics of the past.This theory has overturned. “X-don” shows that which is larger than a mountain. I am expressing one of its possibilities.
