The Japanese have a custom of holding a variety of events praying for the healthy growth of boys on the day of “Tango-no-sekku.” This is on May 5 and is a national holiday called “Children’s Day.” In a few regions it is celebrated on June 5th, following the old lunar calendar.
The “kakejiku” (hanging scroll) of a “musha” (armoured warrior) painting is often displayed in a “tokonoma” (alcove). This is because parents and grand parents hope that the male child will be strong like a musha.
This is a painting of a musha by Shunkou Masuda. The depictions of splendid armour, a lively black horse and strong pine trees are designed to make the musha appear stronger to the viewer. This is a work which we would really like to display on the day of Tango-no-sekku.
