This custom dojo wallscroll is in the Maru Hyougu style. It reads
心身鍛解放First two characters are shinmi which means mind and body.Third character is Kitaeru which is the verb to forge, train or disciplineLast two characters are Kaihou which means to emancipate or set free.
I also upgraded the jikusaki to a rosewood machined shape. I think it is fancy but not too fancy to overpower the simpler scroll design. It utilizes a bright gold Ichimonji to really make a smooth transition between the gray cloth and the artwork.

I created the scroll in the Sandan Hyougu style.
It has a pure silk Navy, with a gold on cream ichmonji and a gray ten/chi. The jikusaki were Machined Rosewood. I am still contemplating whether to put on Fuutai...

This particular scroll is done in the fukuro hyougu style. I applied a 1.5 bun measured suji in gold around the painting to provide a relief to the cloth and painting. This painting is so powerful, I wanted to utilize a simple mounting style.
Yes, my studio is a little messy.
