Two Scrolls for House Decor

These two scrolls are also ordered for Home decor. The one on the right reads I am my Brothers Keeper, I am my Sisters Keeper. In Japanese it reads "Watashi wa Kyoudai no banin de ari Shimai no Banin desu. The scroll on the left reads Walk cheerfully over all the world, answering God in everyone. In Japanese it reads Sekai wo genki ni aruki kami ga Sonzai suru to shiru.

Both of these were written by Yoshimi Yamada Maples, under the supervision of her own sensei while she was back in Japan. They are written in the Gyousho style. Both scrolls are completed with a Celery green silk, and the Ichimoji is a beautiful Gold on Green. The jikusaki are the rosewood with design and bone inserts. The Hanging string is the Usukincha.
