UPDATED: "We all know that Akira Kurosawa’s films are a great work of art but @jamesjeanart and @jeffstaple taking that inspiration to the next level. Elegantly sculpted in PVC , there lies a deathly stillness to this piece of work as seen in the ending of Throne of Blood where actor Toshiro Mifune was rained with arrows by his very own skilled archers. The pigeon poses like an actor in Noh—a form of Japanese theatre originating in the 14th century, taking cue from this visual style that was infused into the film." (@mightyjaxx)

"The term "artist" is thrown around quite casually these days. Sure, the word can be used for anyone with creative pursuits. But if you think about it, there's probably not a lot of true artisans that you personally know.
I know one. His name is James Jean. (@jamesjeanart) And he will probably go down in history as one of the greats of our time. But more importantly, he's a great friend too.
To continue the celebration of #StapleXX, we have begun working together on his first-ever originally designed sculptural figure. It’s a long process, but as with most artists, everything starts with a simple sketch. I am very proud of this one! Stay tuned!" (@jeffstaple)
