Cat-scratch Habaki

Not a great work of art, but art all the same (and certainly WAY better than anything I could do!!!).  Found by Thomas @Kiipu at Warrelics Here.

Bob Coleman didn't believe it represented real Japanese work or art.  He didn't say why, and he's no longer with us, or I'd ask.  Anyone see what he was seeing, or not seeing, that made it seem Chinese to him?

Ed,

I wonder if the left and right facing swasticas were intentional or just part of the elaborate pattern.  Anyone creative enough to make that pattern likely built it around the swastikas.  I learned something tonight as I didn't know the "left" and "right" facing carried different meanings!

Hi Bruce, 

The pattern is called Sayagata. A pattern of interlocking Manji.

Regards, Ed
