Bushido Code: Virtues of the Samurai
The Samurai with the Wooden Earring
These portraits are visual interpretations of the Bushido virtues, capturing the elegant essence of The Girl with the Pearl Earring while adding the strength and honor of Japanese Samurai addition of the fortitude of the wood and brilliance of the primary colors. The virtues of Bushido are represented through color choice. Red represents courage, yellow represents honor, black represents sincerity, and white represents benevolence. The symbol of the Samurai is painted in black on the base of the earring to draw the eye down the sharp curve of the red paint. The sharp curves are inspired by the crisp edges of a katana, the traditional weapon of the samurai. Samurai were of the highest honor and placed a great deal of importance on loyalty and duty. This piece expresses the same passion for these ethical qualities that lead to a fulfilled life.
