I wanted to use a metal sword to express the spirit of prayer, strength,and beauty concealed in people.
The sword confronts the viewer as a representation of a penetrating shape.
The power of an Amagatsu doll to ward off evil is infused in the sword.
The white color of the sword indicates the presence of a god, nature, or something else that exceeds human wisdom.
The name is the Sword of Amagatsu: Tengeiken.

Shogo Okamoto was born as the eldest son of Shoho Menya, the 14th Mensho Kyoto doll artist in a lineage of doll artists that has continued since the Hoei Era (1704 to 1710) of the Edo Period. Traditionally, dolls are alternate forms of sacred existences. They purify the space in which they are displayed and are made with medicinal herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine so that they can be cherished more dearly.
