Bushido Code

Samurai warriors share an unwritten code of conduct, outlining the essential elements of a truly well-rounded fighter. To reflect the time and discipline involved in adhering to the Bushido Code, I created this one-of-a-kind piece entirely by hand. The calligraphy was written with ultra-fine brush pens, and the headings were cut out with a scalpel, letter by letter, to reveal specialty Japanese papers underneath.
