St-Nicholas missionary in Japan

Bronze - 1.8m, Tokyo, 2004

On his first visit to Japan, Gregory Pototsky was quite surprises to hear about a Russian priest who came in the 19th to convert the Japanese to the Orthodox church; more than 30,000 followed his teachings. He was able there to achieve the construction of one of the most beautiful Orthodox church.
The artist had the feeling that the eyes of the saint looked at him with love and understanding; that Saint-Nicholas will come and bless him.
