Large Ceramic Sculptures

This small castle is at Hirosaki and, although not shown in this image, has wonderful ceramic sculptured "Lion's Head" and "Dolphin" ornamentation on the end tiles and roof finials. We visited the factory and saw these large pieces being very skilfully made.

  1. What a wonderful stone foundation wall underneath the castle. And I love the sculpted heads.
