Ivory okimono depicting a Samurai dressed in his full war armour, of complicated and difficult construction. He carries a bow, sword and a writing brush in his hand. The art of the sword has often been accompanied by other arts, from poetry to painting to sculpture: the samurai, in the collective imagination of fierce warriors, cultivated in addition to martial arts also Zen arts such as tea or calligraphy. The main road for a true Samurai was, therefore, that of the brush and the sword. The Samurai is already a rare subject, but in this case it is even more rare as it is very difficult to find yourself in front of a sculpture depicting the Samurai wearing his full armour, in this case even depicted with the kabuto where a karashishi stands out.
