sakuma sota marionette 2 (No strings attached)

Another sakuma sota marionette, used with permission (thank you!). 
It is 4"x5", and I omitted the strings!  I know, not a marionette without the strings...but I just loved his pose and decided to leave them off.  Because I could.  :-D

This is a 20"x20" request for Grace, and I thought her name was also perfectly fitting for this painting.  :)
