More about this print: After mastering the art of spear fighting, the monk In’ei (1521-1607) invented the Hozoin yari, a spear with a crescent-shaped cross-blade that was named after his martial arts school at the Hozoin temple in Nara. Here he may be reflecting upon his achievements while his practice spear crosses the crescent moon.
