Matoya - C052
This made in Japan Kojiri features target and arrow. If the Katana is the most popular symbol of the Samurai, the bow, or Yumi in Japanese should not be forgoten. Although Samurai did have access to some firearms, their efficacy was limited by technology of the time and the bow remained the most efficient long distance weapon until the Edo period. Proper use of the bow was the key to success in battle, which might be the reason why archery as a form of art and spiritual practice was considered above the practice of the sword by the imperial court. This piece represent an arrow flying to its target, as a symbol of the projection of the warrior mental strength.
