Jikishinkan Aikido Scroll

This was a scroll commissioned by an Aikido group in New York. One of their members did the calligraphy, and it is beautifully brushed. It reads Jikishinkan, which they translate as Direct Mind. They wanted this light blue cloth. They also selected brown glazed ceramic fuuchin to go along with the scroll. It came out beautifully.

The scroll is finished with an ebony jikusaki and the Kodai San Iro hanging string.
