Harumafuji - Aki Basho Yusho Portrait!

Recommended Posts

I really like the concept, it expresses nicely the idea "Here comes a new Yokozuna".

I am assuming this is a departure from the portraits in previous yokozuna-promoting yusho?

Certainly from the last few. Pictures nicked from the DB:

On one hand, it makes sense to have him pose beltless.... He won the basho as an Ozeki. On the other hand, it looks rediculous without the belt. Maybe he can do a re-shoot?

Compare with Hakuho's May 2010 yusho portrait.
