View Full Version : Looking for wood block print
06-17-2009, 01:13 PM
Some time on E-Budo there was some discussion on feeling intent in relation to Hopology. There was an old wood block print (It may have something to to do with the Int. Hopology Society web site), that had a samurai/ninja disguised as an old person. Sneaking up behind them was a samurai with a weapon (maybe naginata). I think they were on a bridge.
I was wondering if anyone knows it from my description?

Dont know if they will have what you want but I found this very cool and very friendly priced shop in Tokyo this last trip. I bought several and plan to buy more every trip. They also deal online.
I get nothing from this promotion other than just sharing info on people who are fair and honest and not greedy.

Bridge + Samurai w/naginata + little dude w/ secret powers= Benkei and Yoshitsune at Gojo.
Good luck searching for the particular print you want. It's an old story and some few hundred ukiyo-e were made. Here are a couple: http://www.ukiyoe-gallery.com/ukiyoe/b197b.jpg

Is this the one you are referring to. I also posted this pic on my nitric oxide supplement (http://bestmusclebuildingsupplement.us/) site and the Counter Point martial arts in woodburn oregon (http://counterpointmartialarts.com) dojang website.
I particularly like this one called Two Poets.:http://www.pandanet.co.jp/English/art/twopoets.html all the open/white space mean enlightenment is all around them.....I think:p
