제임스 진(James Jean)은 브랜드 스테이플(Staple)의 아이콘인 비둘기 모티프를 화살을 뚫고 나온 주인공의 드라마틱한 포즈로 재해석했다. 작품의 제목은 일본의 거장 아키라 쿠로사와(Akira Kurisawa)감독이 세익스피어(Shakespeare)의 4대 비극으로 꼽히는 멕베스(Macbeth)를 바탕으로 만든 영화 거미의 성(Throne of Blood, 1957)에서, 아름답게 연출된 수백 발의 화살에 최후를 맞은 주인공 와시즈(Washizu) 장군의 이름에서 기인한다.
Inspired by Japanese film maestro Akira Kurosawa’s 1957 masterpiece—Throne of Blood, this beautiful pigeon sculpt with a volley of arrows pierced through his body is an allegorical reference to the film’s protagonist, General Washizu. The film transposes the plot of Shakespeare’s notable Macbeth, telling a story of a warrior who assassinates his local lord under the coercion of his ambitious wife. The sculpt is executed with meticulous attention to detail in line with Kurosawa’s sense of realism and perfectionism.

About James Jean Born in Taiwan and based in Los Angeles, James Jean fuses contemporary subjects with aesthetic techniques inspired by traditional Chinese scroll paintings, Japanese woodblock prints, and Renaissance portraiture. By experimenting with different styles and art-historical genres, Jean depicts detailed cosmological worlds that focus on both individual and universal experiences. His small-scale pieces feature single figures engaged in everyday tasks, and are focused on specific narratives and emotions. Jean’s large-scale works recall complex Hieronymus Bosch paintings and majestic Tang Dynasty landscapes. Layered with imagery drawn from both contemporary culture and age-old allegories, the artist imagines a collective realm of mythological proportions.
