The Kumaso (熊襲) were a tribe of the Jomon people(the aboriginal inhabitants of Japan) of ancient Japan, who lived in the south of Kyūshū (their domain encompassing the historical provinces of Hyuga,Osumi,and Satsuma or present day Miyazaki and Kagoshima prefectutures) until at least the Nara period(710AD-794AD). Kuma (meaning "bear") and So (meaning "attack)in Japanese.The name was given to them by the Yamato(Japanese)to describe both (some of)their physical traits and their fierceness in combat.
Here's my Kumaso Warrior action figure.For his head I converted a CTVT Prof.Bergman head with Claystone(gave him a new hairdo and nose).For the body I used a CTVT Brown body. I sculpted his sword and Sheath from Sculpey and his shield and spear blade (made the spear shaft from a wooden chopstick)from Clay-stone.I made his straw skirt and cape from jute twine.I painted his head,his tattoos,and his body hair with acrylic paints and sealed with Mod-podge.

Thanks,glade you like my Kumaso brave.I plane to make some more custom figures from this time period in Japan's history again in the Future since I find that time very interesting subject.I would like to make a Yamato(Japanese)Warrior and perhaps a Jomon(Emishi) warrior from Honshu as well eventually in the future.
