This rare and important sculpture in the round is by famous Japanese Pop artist Hiro Ando.

“Jiro” Masatora, 一文字 次郎 正虎, is Hidetora’s second son in Ran, Kurosawa’s last epic Hidetora Ichimonji, a powerful though now elderly warlord, decides to divide his kingdom among his three sons: Taro, Jiro, and Saburo. Taro, the eldest, will receive the prestigious First Castle and become leader of the Ichimonji clan, while Jiro and Saburo will be given the Second and Third Castles. Hidetora is to retain the title of Great Lord and Jiro and Saburo are to support Taro.

The central theme of the film is its thematic study of the inheritance of power intergenerationally between a single parent and his three children, but themes of chaos, nihilism, and warfare recur also throughout the film Hiro ANDO’s gleaming steel kabuto pay homage to Kurosawa and to his epic often been cited as amongst his finest achievements
