Lonely Guardian

The love of the heavy and ponderous for the small and fleet!

Miyazaki's Laputa (or Castle in the Sky for American fans) is an early masterpiece of his, and manages to be both a fun adventure and sweet spiritual companion to his greatest work, Nausicaa.

The guardian robot is immortalized in bronze atop his own museum in Mitaka, as well as featured in his experimental animation room in one of the most beautiful exhibits I have ever seen. I was not the only one brought to tears by the sight. If you ever have the chance, go to the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Japan, you will not regret it. I hope this piece shows a bit of the love I have for this concept and its creator.


This is also available in other sizes, including 20x30 for $50. It is printed on lustre photo paper which is semi-matte, and will ship to you in a cello sleeve, rolled up in a poster tube.
