    Not bad, but I do not remember a samurai with lace except perhaps Toshiro Mifune in the seven samurai.

    the antique prints depict the samurai with characteristic mustaches

    what is the reference for this sculpture?

    I guess this is supposed to be a Samurai bust. The two katana blades, the katana sword fittings and tuska-ito are questionable. The two plates in front of the chest are in the wrong position. The SENDAN-NO-ITA (right side) and KYUBI-NO-ITA (left side). The Sendan no Ita was larger with lacing and flexible construction was designed to protect the chest and armpit area while riding into battle when firing arrows. The Kyubi-no-Ita, the longer and narrower plate on the other hand, was designed to protect the heart.

    Not a fan of this one. The swords just don't look right.
