This scroll was a commissioned scroll and is already sold. To work on designing your own scroll, contact Jonathan Maples at  

This is for the name Martha. It was translated phoenetically as Maasa or マアサ in Hiragana. Because it is a foreign word, it would be more appropriate to list it as マーサ in katakana.

The tan color of the scroll is complemented with a black kakehimo and black wooden lacquered jikusaki which give the scroll an extra look of elegance in its design.
