A patinated bronze figure of a warrior
Meiji period
Standing in an animated pose with his left leg forward and arms extended outwards with a long spear to the front, his bearded face with an intense expression and framed by a unique helmet fashioned as a tall court hat (lacking maedate) and wearing a wind-swept jinbori over elaborate armour; all supported on a large stained wood stand with floral-carved aprons.
