Hi,there, Daryl! I have the feeling you left part of yourself in Japan (?) I like the presentation here, quite artistic, and the tiles are a good counterpart to the little statue.

@Japanalia: Thanks Gabriela. I certainly feel I left something behind.

What a nice statue. At Roma, they call them "lares"

@Calusarus: Thanks Calusarus. I think that "lares" are very similar to this!

Beautifully spotted and exploited ! The little figure has so much character seen like this.
