ART: Samurai Inspired (武士触発)

Samurai Inspired - (40 Images)

   The helmet, the armor, the blades & the code... Everything about the samurai is intriguing. Artists especially, amateur & pro have their imaginations ignited by this ancient Japanese warrior.

   I've assembled, not 7, but 40 of my favorite bushi from 40 brilliant artists creating traditional & historically accurate samurai, pop remixed ronin, sci-fi shizoku, sexy onna-bugeisha & abstract yakuza.

   A samurai should not scandalize his name forever by holding his one & only life too dear... One's main purpose in throwing away his life is to do so either for the sake of the Emperor or in some great undertaking of a military general.
