Fantastic sculpture! Just look at that tail and the angle of the horse's body. Makes me want to see what made Masashige stop him in full run.

Impressive statue, I like the detail of the horse tail in horizontal, as riding very fast... Nice shots!

This statue is very impressive because it seems to be alive and moving. That gives something very strong, and as you took the picture from beneath, it is much stronger!I like when you talk about samouraï. They always seemed to be both strong and wise, warrior and clever at the same time. Very deep and interesting people!

(Nobu, I'm leaving about a week for holidays.I won't post or comment during this time. Take care of you!)

Wow, a samurai! How fascinating... Beautiful statue, it has such a dramatic movement! (I think of many other equestrian statues we have here that are definitely more "static"...!)
