Masayuki 政之 (Seishi)


Japanese gold lacquer and shibayama inlays table screen decorated with Fujiwara no Yasumasa, a noble at the Heian Court (958-1036) celebrated for his poetry and artistry on the flute, the back with cranes among reeds and a geese flying across a moonlit landscape, signed in a tsuishu red lacquer reserve Masayuki 政之 (Seishi), Meiji Period.

Legend says that on a moonlight night when Yasumasa was playing his flute, the villain Hakamadare was laying in wait, intending to kill him.
But he was so overcome by the beautiful music, that he was unable to draw his sword against Yasumasa.
