Kise already has fulfilled all expectations and looks much more impressive: this year's kitai-taishou May dolls, with PicoTaro and Yuzuru Hanyu

Kisenosato's dohyo-iri (with Takayasu) made of every day pottery - one piece at an exhibition of such sculptures (others of bamboo) at the Hosshou temple in Nanbu-town, Tottori. http://www.asahi.com/articles/ASK4765CYK47PUUB00F.html

Why did they give him Kagayaki's boobs? :-D

the national treasure animal picture scroll(s)
Chouju_1st_scroll-05.jpg

Now there is a site that plays around with the animals of the scroll: http://www.chojugiga.com/

The designs for sumo are still close to the original ones: http://www.chojugiga.com/tag/相撲

some only slightly varied

s1024_chojudaC0031_0.jpg

but there are also new designs for other fighting styles

chojudaC0001.png

and even modern ones

Ancient style Yamato-Izumo dolls are said to have their roots in haniwa figures buried in ancient funeral mounds (kofun).

Standard forms are the rikishi, the dog and the left-above style kimono (for the dead) doll. Kazu Mizuno recreates them.

時に流血を伴う取組は塩によって浄められる。 土俵においては血は穢れを指し、忌み嫌われる。 
だがしかし生身の人間同士のぶつかり合い、流血や怪我は避けて通れないものである。 
あえて流血を描いたのは、本気でぶつかる勝負師としての姿を表現したかったからだ。

While being a big fan of the AsaChan ozumo corner, I completely missed the chances to get the free badges (and fans) they distribute each basho at the TBS broadcast booth. Mania fans like MyYetSetLife likely have complete sets

C2RcHH9UQAALcl8.jpg:thumbo

the recent set was this, yokozuna with attendants

C_v6uI9VwAAHbaJ.jpg:large

I post the rest as overview, first recent designs of a character, then older ones

All are in cattle=Ushi/gyu-style, after the unofficial AsaChan mascot ZuhMou-chan.

Some close to real names, some not.

Ushiku-chan is of course named after his shusshin

DAEk8I_UAAAxoZd.jpg:thumboC6ZXhBCU4AAzQBw.jpg:thumboC7lTSXlVAAAL836.jpg:thumbo

they had a yusho badge for him already last year

Bafaro (buffalo) - Ba is derived from Ha, fa from fu and shiranui style - might mean HF, but also is the rival of mascot zuumou-chan

I will file this under art, because they still take liberty with Kisenosato's obvious amount of visceral fat.
