Complete Miniature Samurai Armor Paper Model With Katana
by Mogami Yoshiaki Historical Museum


Offered by Mogami Yoshiaki Historical Museum, this is a Complete Miniature Samurai Armor Paper Model With Katana. Samurai (侍?) is the term for the military nobility of pre-industrial Japan. According to translator William Scott Wilson: "In Chinese, the character 侍 was originally a verb meaning to wait upon or accompany a person in the upper ranks of society, and this is also true of the original term in Japanese, saburau. In both countries the terms were nominalized to mean "those who serve in close attendance to the nobility", the pronunciation in Japanese changing to saburai. According to Wilson, an early reference to the word "samurai" appears in the Kokin Wakashū (905–914), the first imperial anthology of poems, completed in the first part of the 10th century. By the end of the 12th century, samurai became almost entirely synonymous with bushi (武士), and the word was closely associated with the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class. The samurai followed a set of rules that came to be known as Bushidō. While they numbered less than 10% of Japan's population samurai teachings can still be found today in both everyday life and in modern martial arts such as Kendō, meaning the way of the sword. - Wikipedia


Oferecido pelo site do Museu Histórico Mogami Yoshiaki, este é o modelo de papel de uma Completa Armadura de Samurai em Miniatura, com Katana e tudo o mais. Honra. Justiça. Perfeição. Lealdade. Estas são algumas das palavras associadas aos Samurais, a classe guerreira do Japão feudal e até hoje, sua influência é sentida no modo de viver e de pensar do povo japonês. Os samurais surgiram, como classe guerreira, na época feudal do Japão e dominaram o país por quase oito séculos (século VIII ao XIX). Ser um samurai era um prestígio social, uma vez que a classe guerreira ocupava os mais altos cargos dentro da ditadura militar nipônica, chamada de Xogunato ou Bakufu. Inicialmente, a função do samurai era apenas coletar impostos e servir ao Império. A partir do século X, a figura do samurai toma forma e ganha uma série de funções militares, alcançando seu ápice no século XVII. - niten.org.br Samurai (kanji: 侍) significa literalmente "aquele que serve", herança de quando eram subordinados diretamente ao imperador. Outro termo muito usado para se referir aos samurais é Bushi (武士), que significa literalmente "guerreiro". É a raiz da palavra Bushido (武士道), ou "Caminho do Guerreiro".
