Famous Swedish artists pays tribute to The Last Guardian with ceramic sculpture of Trico
It’s a beautiful piece of art that almost feels like an artifact, and oh, The Last Guardian is out for the PS4 TODAY.
The long-awaited spiritual successor to the PlayStation classic Ico, The Last Guardian, receives an artistic tribute to world-renowned ceramicist Lisa Larson. Created as part of the celebration of the game’s release after being under development for 10 years as it suffered a plethora of obstacles, the sculpture, which is modeled after the game’s young protagonist and his companion Trico, will be on display at Lisa Larson’s Christmas exhibit in the Hankyu Umeda Gallery, Osaka Japan.
The artistic design of the ceramic sculpture almost feels as if it is a tribal artifact and perhaps draws a deep connection towards the game’s themes for the young, player-controlled lead character does have a tribal themed design such as the Maori and Samoan ritualistic tattoos found on his body.
The Last Guardian is one of the most awaited titles for the PlayStation 4 and was originally intended for PlayStation 3 during its initial announcement back in 2007. The game serves as the spiritual successor to the classic Ico and also has its appeal to fans of the game, Shadow of the Colossus. The Last Guardian is currently well received by critics with a Metacitic score of 82 out of 100.
After 10 long years of waiting, The Last Guardian is finally out for the PlayStation 4 today in US and Japan with the Australian region to get their release this coming Dec 7, and Europe to follow on Dec 9.
