a.k.a. Yakimon Fungus Baby Statue, Akatango
This is a ceramic sculpture from Munktiki's Yakimon line. The character of Matango is from a 1963 Japanese tokusatsu movie. It was directed by Ishirō Honda, and written by Takeshi Kimura based on the story "The Voice in the Night" by William Hope Hodgson. The movie has developed a cult audience over the years, partly due to its bleakness and unusual themes, particularly when compared to other Japanese fantasy and science fiction films of the same period. This version is Akatango (Baby Matango) and comes in several different glaze combinations.
