Barry Stein’s bronze include Warriors and Heroes such as The Last Samurai. The Last Samurai is a symbol of the legacy of the samurai. Over time, the samurai were ordered to change their way due to the inclusion of western-style governing. The decline was due to Emperor Meiji’s abolishment of the samurai’s right to be the only armed force in favor of a more modern, western-style, conscripted army in 1873. Samurai became Shizoku (士族) who retained some of their salaries, but the right to wear a katana in public was eventually abolished along with the right to execute commoners who paid them disrespect. The samurai finally came to an end after hundreds of years of enjoyment of their status, their powers, and their ability to shape the government of Japan.
Another hero of Barry Stein’s collection is King Leonidas. Leonidas was a hero-king of Sparta, the 17th of the Agiad line, one of the sons of King Anaxandridas II of Sparta, who was believed in mythology to be a descendant of Hercules, possessing much of the latter’s strength and bravery. He is notable for his leadership at the Battle of Thermopylae against the Persian King Xerxes I and his army.
