This painting is inspired by the legendary Samurai Miyamoto Musashi, known for his unique double-bladed swordsmanship and a record of 60 undefeated duels. Symbolic colors, treatments, and elements reflect the Japanese culture, from the flag on the background to the water dragon splashing the stylized waves. A glorious moment from the ancient past is brought back to life with color.
