Castle in the Sky – ShenYin Studio
Castle in the Sky – ShenYin Studio: The “Memories Stop-motion Series” series from the Studio Ghibli has released a statue of the “Castle in the Sky” Peace Concerto, featuring Pazu on the rooftop holding a trumpet, and Sheeta smiling amidst a flock of white doves. The scene is delightful!
This statue stands at 16 centimeters tall, not very large but with rich details. The texture of the rooftop wooden planks and red bricks, the serene or dynamic white doves, and the central image of the youthful boy and girl— the entire atmosphere is relaxed and dynamic, with a rare “airiness” seen in physical statues.
The smiles on the faces of Pazu and Sheeta are pure and innocent, complemented by the symbols of peace and purity in the surrounding white doves, perfectly portraying the timeless theme of “girl meets boy” in the classic anime “Castle in the Sky.”
From every angle, this piece showcases a cinematic sense. This is credited to the brand’s understanding of the essence of animation, with a well-balanced arrangement of elements in the scene and meticulous attention to exquisite details that are omnipresent.
What’s astonishing is that this petite 16-centimeter statue also has LED lighting! When the warm lights illuminate the indoor space at night, against the backdrop of a serene scene, one can surely feel the theme of the “Peace Concerto” even more!
Overall, this is another excellent figure based on one of Studio Ghibli’s masterpieces. If you’re a fan of this figure, take action now!
