And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow." - T.S. Eliot

Yasuke was officially delivered to and installed without any hassles in his new home! Very proud to have a work in the corporate collection of the Sovereign Trust. Thank you to @erdmanngallery for helping with the transport and set-up of this bulky beast 🙌

"The Samurai lived by a code of honor, not unlike the code that you live by. It’s called the Bushido. It was never written down; was always something the Samurai knew, and it was handed down from one warrior to another. One of the tenets of the code is about justice. Not the pounding of a gavel on the bench of some judge who’s been appointed to pass judgment on people by some politician. No, malaka, this concept of justice is what you feel in your bones: to die when it is right and to strike when it is right." - Kenneth Eade, 'An Evil Trade'. ▪

"In a certain sense all of us, by the simple fact of being born of woman, are 'hijos de la Chingada', sons of Eve." - Octavio Paz, 'El Laberinto de la Soledad' (1950).

"The idleness of a passenger, my isolation amongst all of these men with whom I had no point of contact; the oily and languid sea, the uniform sombreness of the coast, seemed to keep me away from the truth of things, within the toil of a mournful and senseless delusion." - Joseph Conrad, 'Heart of Darkness'. ▪
