Object Description
Edo period color woodblock print from the series "Imayo Nazorae Genji" (Contemporary Allusion to the Tale of Genji). Miyamoto Musashi, the famed originator of Nitenryu (two swords) fencing school. During his "musha shugyo (warrior pilgrimage), he met the legendary old swordmaster, Kasawara Bokuden who invited him to his house. Since Musashi was a vehement young man, he attacked the old man with his two swords while he was cooking. But the old master could sense the attack was coming, and he parried all of Musashi's attacks with only a saucepan lid. After Musashi exhausted his attacks, he apologized to the old master. The master eventually taught Musashi the finest point of the fencing art.
