The Half Armored Samurai

The Half Armored Samurai, white metal,  90 mm scale,   Sculptured by Stefano Borin,   Manufactured by White Models,   Private Collection of George Papandreas, assembled &  painted by Alex Castro

This Samurai’s attire is a composite of what he picked up from the battle. What makes this piece interesting is its poetic posing, which gives it elegance; the accuracy of details and historical components. This is a very intricate piece and challenging. One of the challenging tasks was hand painting the floral work, which had to be exact and is time consuming.  This piece demonstrates the Thermostat theory where I balanced the warm colors (green and yellows) with the cooler colors ( blues and purple) achieving a dynamic harmony.
