If You Want Peace, Prepare for War - Japanese Scroll close up view

Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This is a very cool calligraphy piece, written in gyosho style (a flowing, almost-cursive Japanese style). The inferred meaning is that if you prepare for war, no one would dare to attack because of your preparations and readiness. It's not far from the western idea of "peace through superior fire power".


About this artwork...

This was created by Japanese master calligrapher Bishou Imai of Nara, Japan. The materials used include special calligraphy paper and ink. The artwork was sent to our workshop in Beijing where we created a hand-built silk brocade wall scroll. By building the wall scroll at our own workshop, we save you a lot of money - most authentic Japanese calligraphy wall scrolls cost over $230!

During her apprenticeship, she taught calligraphy and studied the art of Japanese silk scroll making (hyougu) at Mizuno Hyougu-ten.

In Addition to being a calligrapher, she is also an "artisan artist" (Hyougushi).

美嶂 is how Bishou is written. This name means "Beautiful Cliff/Mountain". You will see these characters signed just before the red signature stamp on her calligraphy pieces.
