She honed in on some of Murakami's iconic images: Mr. DOB, a sort-of Mickey Mouse, and Mr. Pointy. It didn't strike her as odd that a Louis Vuitton boutique was in the middle of the exhibit, but she was giggling at the prices in the gift shop at the end: $98 for a plush flower, $42 for a child's T-shirt. The gift shop did have more appropriately priced books on anime and manga, and some Japanese board books.
There are a couple of almost pornographic images in the exhibit that Nora barely noticed. One is a statue of a girl with enormous breasts jumping rope made from her breast milk, and there is a boy with a gigantic penis. These were recreated in miniature; apparently, they were included in boxes of candy in Japan.
