Yuujin (Friend)

I made this scroll for a martial artist that was providing gifts for those who helped train with him through his dan testing. It reads 友人 which means friend. This is not written by Yoshimi Yamada Maples, but artist Natsuko Horinouchi, based in Germany.

The color of the cloth is bone white with a deep gold on gold Ichimonji with a small karakusa (arabesque). The scroll is completed with an ivory plastic jikusaki and a light gold (usukincha) hanging string.
