It is now 75 years since an atomic was dropped in Nagasaki, Japan on August 9th, 1945.

The contortions on the surface of the original brown glass bottle were caused by radiation and it has never been touched since then. It has been stored in the museum in Nagasaki city.

Nagasaki artisan who reproduced the deformed bottle uses 3D modelling to create the reproduction with 400 years Hasami ware porcelain technique. The names of the artist and the gallery were not mentioned in NHK News. But according to a blog source, the name of the artist is Nanae Kaguma and the art gallery is Coyama.

The reproduction of the deformed bottle allows new generations to have better grasp of what happened on August 9th, 1945 in Nagasaki, Japan.
