Guan Yu was always my personal favourite, recently saw the film 'Red Cliff' it's a John Woo movie about Cao Cao's southern campaign starring Takeshi Kaneshiro as Kong Ming/Zhuge Liang, anyway was quite disappointed to find that Guan Yu didn't get as much attention as he probably deserved but this has made it all better!
When I wanted to find informations about this one, I had difficulties because where I live, he's refered as "Guan Di"... Figures... And ho, it's fantasticaly beatutiful ! The statue I have of him is poor quality compared to this picture, and... Well... The red on his face is a bit obvious, like "YEAH !!!! I'M RED !!!!" too.
