The sun has, since ancient times, been worshipped around the world and many religions have developed out of sun-worshipping traditions. For example, “Amaterasu Ōmikami,” the top god in Japanese mythology, is the sun god.
A “kakejiku” (hanging scroll), on which “Tenshōkōtaijin”(Amaterasu Ōmikami) is written, is often displayed in “tokonoma” (alcove) for the safety of the family, a state of perfect health, a good harvest, and so on.
This Amaterasu Ōmikami was written by Ueda Shūzan who is known in Japan as a “nōshoka” (master of calligraphy). This is a very dynamic and powerful piece of calligraphy.
