Never Surrender Kakejiku

This scroll is going to Canada. It has a family crest assigned to this individual by Japan. The writing says Kuppuku Suru Bekarazu. Never surrender is the meaning of the phrase.

This was drawn and written by Natsuko Horinouchi. It is hard to see, but the cloth has white raised interwoven lines over the grey. It is very beautiful. The Ginran has a silver on green. The hanging string is Takuboku (white with green and black fleck) and the jikusaki is made of ivory plastic.

It is a very beautiful scroll.
