(435) Sumo 2: Surrealism

In a country where everyone collects dolls, it is not strange to find dolls (OK, “figures”) of sumo wrestlers. Pictured are the ozeki Kotoshogiku (琴奨菊) and Kotooshu (琴欧洲); the latter is the one on the right and he is Bulgarian. And since Christmas is coming (well, sort of) the seasonal hint is not strange either.
