Stitch riding Shisa statuette
Got my big, big box o' Stitch (finally!!!) today. This is that amazing statuette of Stitch riding a Shisa (basically, the Okinawan version of a Fu doggie) that I wrote about a while back. It's actually even more keen than I thought it was gonna be. It's fairly big, and has a neat "wash" looking finish that I haven't seen in many other Japanese ceramics.
Looks like the statue was made to promote the Stitch! anime cartoon, though I don't know much else about it. The anime starts at 7:26 pm! I guess some stations start their shows a bit early to get a jump on the competition.
