The down turned lips and fixated expression offers a glimpse in to the intensely trained professional with a single focused mind. See how he bends forward but still has his hand on the sword as if he is ready to draw it out anytime. The layered and had painted robe is spectacular. Using water colors, the Master Carver has managed to give a distinctive look to the mammoth ivory sculpture of the samurai. Notice the painstaking details on the attire, giving glossy etchings over the solid ivory yet the folds of the dress seem as if it is fabric. Look at the open robe, the falling folds at precise intervals, and the flow of the large sleeves and the knot of the robe belt that holds the dress close. See how perfectly the Master Carver has been able to manage all of it with equal precision.

The beautiful highlights in brown with delicate patterns all over the dress are noticeable. The skill of the artist at hand painting and carving minute details clearly is apparent. It is set upon a custom carved wooden base.
