handcrafted Polystone statue of the warlord Oda Nobunaga. Limited production to 50 pieces in the world.
We commissioned Mr. Hiromichi Miura, an advisor to The Association for the Research and Preservation of Japanese Helmets and Armor, to research the details of armor used by Oda Nobunaga, a Japanese samurai warrior of the Sengoku period. This resulted in our being able to manufacture a historically accurate and faithful polystone reproduction of Oda Nobunaga.
Oda Nobunaga, the most well-known general of the Warring State Period, swept the whole country of Japan with his brand new thinking and bold tactics.Nobunaga was a man of plasticity who adopted the Western culture before anyone else. The best example is that Nobunaga was one of the earliest people in the world who possessed a large number of guns for having realized their power. Being filled with ambition to integrate dominions of Japan into a whole country with the help of gun's power, Nobunaga has been described as a talent meanwhile a maniac as well.
This statue of Nobunaga is dressed in his favorite Nanban Kabuto. To represent the unique sense of beauty of the Warring State Period, colors of black, red and golden have been partially added to the works. On the horse back, you can find a matchlock, which was the latest weapon at the Warring State Period. Most efforts have been made to recreate the cold expression of the man who called himself God, paying no attention to even the Imperial Court. Besides, special efforts also have been made to represent minute parts such as Kusazuri (thigh protector) and Douate in details. Coming up with the matchlock, even the mechanism inside has been represented same as that of a real gun.
