      Where would a person display it? And who? I don't know the size so if this is absurd, excuse the question--Could it have been part of a wrestling trophy?

      I guess Japanese alright. But what material? I still say---Where are you going to put it?? For sure a guy's thing, right? On a bar, in a sport decor room. den.? As a lady--I wouldn't care for it just sitting around in the parlor.
      But it is indeed, a work of art!!

      Thank you all so much for your replies. I found it at a flea market this weekend and had no idea what it was.
      Loved the art and bought it for 25 euro.
      Dong some reacearch into it and found out it is valuable.
      But postcardcollector s rght, i wouldnt put it on display, it is pretty scary to some people and not ladylike ;-)
