Fierce Grace & Dream Chaser

 These scrolls were made as companion pieces. They are beautiful, done is a Sandan Hyougu (三段表具)style with some good contrasting elements for a very soothing feel. They are both written in a semi-cursive style, but the second was translated by Yoshimi. The first character is fierceness 猛(もう)or mou can be greatly energetic, fierce or ferocious and 優美(ゆうび)or yuubi can be read as grace or refinement. Fierce Grace.
The Ichimonji is a white on gold, and the purple Chuumawashi cloth has a simple pattern. The Bone colored cloth is a strong contrast with the purple and the Deep Brown stained wood jikusaki. The kakejiku is finished with the Takuboku hanging string.
