Bushido and Seven Virtues

This scroll was commissioned to the South East for a martial artist. It is written in the kaisho (block print) style and has Bushido and then the seven virtues on the left hand side. The customer selected a very beautiful cloth that goes well with this writing. The Ichimonji is also a very beautiful kinran.
