Jurojin by Kosetsu (Tatsuya Todo)

The original painting was made by Soga Shohaku (1730-1781), a picture of happiness. Jurojin himself is the god of longevity, trying to lift the turtle from the water. A white deer sit beside him and a crane was flying in the sky. Then, a pine tree at bank, bamboo and apricot are also shown there. The theme is just a matter of happiness with Shochikubai (pine-bamboo-apricot) symbols of best 1-2-3, and the crane for 1,000 years, turtle for 10,000 years with white deer, all loved to display on New Year by Japanese, the most important holidays of the year. I asked Kosetsu san to draw this masterpiece on our Yokozuna pen, and I’m very glad I gave him the right theme.
