Lladro has drawn inspiration from traditional Japanese culture to create this Warrior Boy, a traditional representation connected with the Tango no Sekku or Boy's Day Festival, held every 5th May.
On the 5th day of the 5th month, during the Boy's Festival (Tango no Sekku), dolls dressed in traditional armor are put on display in Japanese homes to wish for the healthy and happy growth of boys. The Waka figurine symbolizes the virtues of courage and determination.
While remaining loyal to the image of the Waka Musha, Lladro recreates it in porcelain with all the guarantees of its painstakingly elaborate process of creation. This new "Waka Musha" by Lladro is much smaller than those previously in catalogue, but that does not affect the strength and elegance of the piece, now with a charming and more childish expression on the boy's face. 6.75in H x 4.75in L
