Staple x James Jean Washizu
For its 20th Anniversary last year, Staple worked with artist James Jean for a limited-edition sculpture. This year, we are releasing this phenomenal sculpture in a beautiful bone-edition – featuring a subtle, weathered ivory-look finishing, making this piece a timeless collectible.
James Jean reimagines Staple’s iconic pigeon motif as a dramatically posed protagonist pierced with arrows. The figure is named after General Washizu from Akira Kurosawa’s “Throne of Blood”, which concludes with Washizu facing a beautifully choreographed barrage of arrows. Jean’s winged figure is an embodiment of persistence over adversity, a memory of the slings and arrows anyone is likely to face over the course of 20 years.
Handcrafted and individually painted
Standing tall at 9.8” X 12” X 13”, this premium collectible is produced in highly detailed vinyl, each individually hand painted to achieve a beautiful weathered ivory-look effect.
