Maeda clan's warrior

Swordstore now offers Japanese art in both antique and high quality limited reproductions. We also have the ability to produce any size (within ratio) reprint that you desire whether your intention is to place in a frame, use as a banner or decorate an entire wall space – we can do it! About this scroll: This scroll was commissioned for a 1st son’s (Inuchiyo) first battle. It is unlikely that he would’ve been allowed anywhere near a battle but the number of heads taken is meant to exaggerate his prowess and as of yet untested courage. Original with kantei (documentation) available.

The Kamakura Period, (11th century) was known for the creation of some of the most dramatic Buddhist art that the world has ever seen. Arguably the most famous school was called the "Kei" school and the artisan/craftsmen had names that ended in "Kei". Unkei's work dominated this school of art.


These statuettes are said to be modeled by Unkei's 3rd son and represent Tentouki and Ryutouki. There is both humor and immense power in these high quality reproductions. Tentouki holds a lantern to "illuminate" in his powerful arm while Ryutouki balances his lantern on his head taking a powerful and balanced stance. Many warriors loved the power that these statues seemed to radiate making this a popular theme throughout the ages.
