Safety prayer ceremony (安全祈願) was conducted before the installation of the head. Leading the ceremony is none other than Yoshiyuki Tomino-sensei, the creator of Gundam.
The head unit was successfully installed on June 20th.
The same prayer session can also be seen before installing the head of Gundam RX-78-2 onto its body when the statue was in Shiokaze Park last year. A safety prayer ceremony was also held before the construction started back in early April.
The completed statue is located at East Shizuoka Square (north east of JR Shizuoka Station/Naganuma, Aoi-ku, Shizuoka City). It will be on display from July 24th, 2010 till January 10th, 2011.
