Tsuba with ship design


A tsuba of global fascinations

story by Francesca Gammino

This beautiful sword guard embodies in its materiality countless narratives of global exchanges, artistic contaminations and fascinations, as well as questions about its origins, its makers and the copies that were made of it. Just like the ship it depicts, this story will sail through the elements, and we will shed light on the stories it holds. Would you like to come on board?
