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.

Motif for T10 Plum:  Strong, First to bloom in the New Year. The Plum is one of the 3 foundation symbols in Japanese traditional literature and would reflect a warrior that was also trained in the brush as well as the sword. Also there is beauty in the plum flower blooming in the snow as it shows strength and is not defeated by the elements such as cold and snow. As a side note, the plum (umiboshi) was believed to kill germs and purify.  This tsuba's square design is a favorite of Iaido beginners as the tsuba is less likely to rock and roll with torei!
