At the place I am currently residing, there is a light fixture from 1925 hanging from the ceiling. I took inspiration from it’s design and created the frame base used in these pieces.
The subject matter is based on “Go Rin No Sho”, the Book of Five Rings by Miyamoto Musashi – “is a text on kenjutsu and the martial arts in general, written by the samurai warrior Miyamoto Musashi circa 1645. It is considered a classic treatise on military strategy, much like Sun Tzu’s The Art of War.”, from the wiki.
