FURINKAZAN Scroll (風林火山) #1735The original version of the banner is mentioned in the Kōyō Gunkan, a record of the military exploits of the Takeda clan. It is based on four phrases from Sun Tzu, which in the original Chinese appear in two consecutive passages:Chapter 7, passage 17: “故其疾如風,其徐如林“ Let your rapidity be that of the wind, your silence that of the forest.Chapter 7, passage 18: “侵掠如火,不動如山“ In raiding and plundering be like fire, be immovable like a mountain.The complete verse (chapter 7 passages 17-19) is "故其疾如風、其徐如林、侵掠如火、難知如陰、不動如山、動如雷霆", and as such it is notable that fūrinkazan omits "難知如陰" Be as hard to know as the shadow and "動如雷霆" Move as fast as lightning.Size: 60cm x 183.6cm / 23.6" x 72.2"Price: $250Age: post 1940Made in Japan
