Original Japanese Calligraphy

(Custom Mat Included!)


Translation: The Art of Self-Defense

The Japanese kanji symbol for Goshinjutsu is carefully brushed by hand onto an elegant piece of Japanse paper.  (Goshinjutsu is the Japanese kanji for The Art of Self-Defense.) This is an attractive piece that will look good hanging in a dojo or a home.

All of our work is hand-brushed by a certified Japanese calligrapher and authenticity is guaranteed.

As all pieces are individually brushed, each calligraphy will vary slightly from the picture.

Total Paper Size: 10.11" x 14.33" (257mm x 364mm)

Total Size with Mat: 12.00" x 16.69" (305mm x 424mm)

The mat has been chosen to accentuate this piece and is custom cut from Japanese paper (note the texture). It is included to retain the authenticity of the calligraphy, and to simplify the framing process.

This size is made just a little over a standard 12''x16''(A3) frame, so that it can be trimmed to individual needs. Japanese art is traditionally displayed in simple black or brown frames. Since the mat is included, there is no need for expensive custom framing.


From the Artist: こんにちは オークションへようこそ。私は藤原真奈美と申します。日本の大阪出身です。書道と木版画を楽しんでいます。そして、これらの文化をあなたと共有し、楽しまれることを望んでいます。アクセスして頂き、ありがとうございました。

Translation: Hello and welcome to my auction. I am Manami Fujiwara and I was born in Osaka, Japan. I enjoy doing calligraphy and woodblock prints and sharing my culture with people from other countries. I hope that you enjoy my work. Thank you for looking.


About the Artist: She is a Japanese native with over 30 years of experience in the art of calligraphy. (This page has been translated for her.)

All pieces are individually brushed. When finished, they are marked with the artist's hanko (stamp) . Their authenticity is absolutely guaranteed, and the work is produced and shipped from Kanazawa, Japan.

Note: Please be careful when buying Japanese calligraphy. Some are clearly done by amateurs; some of whom are not familiar with the Japanese language. Often the kanjis are not correct for the intended meaning. (We've even seen this on tattoos!) Authentic Japanese calligraphy is an art that takes many years to truly master. This piece is done in the beautifully fluid "gyosho" (semi-cursive) style.

This is an excellent price for an original piece, and a great way to begin collecting Asian art.
