There is some great detail on this! The stances of the samurai are fantastic!

I find the little structure the most to my tastes!

Quoting Mike Johnson I especially like this piece. The clean and simple lines lend strongly to an Asian motif you went for. Gee, how often does that word get used nowadays?
I'm all about the motifs.

Quoting Senator Chinchilla . Still speechless, and its been nearly 4 hours since I saw it on Flickr. There's just so much being conveyed in those two swordsman...
Rendering you speechless; that is a tall order.

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 HALF POINT! lol, do you remember that very old karate arcade game? your piece reminded me of it, very cool shadow scene, the stances are convincing!
Do you mean the amazing Way of the Exploding Fist (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKCfsaQODJo), because yes I must have unconsciously filtered those memories!

Quoting MortalSwordsman . What a beautiful piece which is very close to my heart. The stances are so very good. I would say the guy on the left is in Panther Stance one leg bent and the other straight (one of my faves). The guy on the right is in Horse Stance both legs bent (very low centre of gravity). These names come from Chinese Kung Fu but I am sure they have different names depending on where the martial art comes from.
Thanks Joe; I certainly had you as an audience in mind when I built this one. My brother was into Kung Fu, and he used to fill my head with knowledge about horse styles and the like; you never know I might try a full on Kung Fu MOC one of these days.

Quoting Topsy Creatori (StoveTopCreator!) I love the crouching position of the one samuri, I do not know what these traditional moves/postures are called, but it reminds me of a tiger! I can really 'see' the quilted pataloons so familiar to samuri garb too, and all you used were a few slandted bricks! Amazing as always! :)
I'm thinking about writing a little blog article on lego angles; those pantaloons could be a great case study.

Quoting Ru Corder Ah yes, this is awesome! It sort of reminds me of that one silhouette fight scene in Kill Bill. Definitely my favorite of yours yet.
Yes I see the Kill Bill thing, thanks.

Quoting A M I absolutely love the shrine and the samurai poses. Nice one!
The shrine was a simple but effective little build.

Quoting Jared . Fantastic design for the poses, really gives off the Samurai vibe!
I did a bit of research for those poses.

Quoting Chris Phipson Annnd when you have a typo and have to retype the comment, the system takes away your rating soooo... here's your 5 smiles back! ~ Chris.
Would we have it any other way; just one of those loveable MOCpages quirks.

Quoting Chris Phipson That thing is just sleek and sweet! I've enjoyed all of your recent "shadow" type work (if that's the right word?) but this one is truly my fav! Nice work on this! ~ Chris.
Thanks Chris, honing the minimalist art of Lego one day at a time ;)

Quoting matt rowntRee This one is a stunner, David. The bamboo trees are perfect. But it is the composition on this that takes my breath away. The stance of the samurai, the samurai themselves, and the way you set the landscaping with the temple and steep mountainside is purely Japanese. Reminds me of the ink on panels or handscrolls of Toyo (less misty though.) Beautiful work!
That's high praise; thanks buddy!

Quoting David Roberts The posing of the two warriors looks great, especially the one on the right. I like the leafless trees two. Being in black and white it very much reminds me of Akira Kurosawa films, but without the rain...
Oh yes, regarding the Kurosawa reference; now how to build Lego rain.

Quoting clayton Marchetti Beautiful job once more. Reminds me of the book 5 rings . The building looks great . The two warriors facing each other I can't help but wonder are the traing or did one cause insult to the other who lives and who dies for once the sword leaves its seath it must taste blood. Awesome piece David
I imagined an ageing mentor training a young adept.

Very cool style. I would love to see it cropped though, so the ends of the build are the edges of the photo. And I believe the term you are looking for is 'Silhouettes', Mr. Phipson.
