Birthday gift to myself at the beginning of the month — this astounding 8″ sofubi statue done in the style of wooden Netsuke charms, called “Sushi Dokuro.”
I know… right!?!?!?
“Sushi Dokuro” was designed/sculpted by Osaka tattoo artist Mitomo Horihiro.
I’m assuming this little dinner plate is natto (codfish roe). I don’t know the story behind this piece, but I do know that natto is smelly and gross…
I saw this on a vinyl toy blog and had to have it, but the bonuses in the package were almost cooler than the loot itself. Check out Horihiro’s promo cards!
These fantastic ninja gals are based on traditional imagery with a modern infusion of tattoos, urban footwear and safe sex messages. The measure about 5-6″, and three of them were included with in my package.
Shuriken and fishnets? This is my future wife! Check out the rubber on the sheath. Classic…
And you have to love the artist’s self portrait, with chain & sickle.
