Masato SUDO | RANSHO
limited edition of 500 copies / numbered & hand-signed
To hold in deep respect the culture of the common people passed down from old, Choosing each pattern with painstaking care.
In the midst of a silent space and moment, The hands of a single minded master
Engrave onto the bodies of the brave
The spirit concealed withing and the beauty released outward, When these have become one,
The aesthetic of the naked body hidden from sight, The pride of Japan, is born in the world.
To those who have gained the ability to shine continuously,
I call, Ransho.
