This project features a bamboo
motif inspired by an 18th Century tsuba. A tsuba is a metal hand guard
found on Japanese military swords.
Tsuba were oval or squarish discs, mounted at the base of the sword
handle. These items were not only practical but often highly ornamental.
Amongst the many beautiful patterns found on tsuba were of course bamboo.
