The statue with the clock had stood opposite Prince Lemercier's room for his entire life. He hadn't thought or cared as to whether it remained there since, but the clocks stayed with him in everyday of his death.
This pin captures the aura of a samurai really well for me. In my opinion it captures patience and pride just through the use of clothing and stance alone. Clothing and stance are something I could use to conjure the same effect in my game.
