Jisei

Editorial displaying the beauty & art within the form of Seppuku.

Samurai, the one who serves. The Samurai are a symbol of service. With their lives being lead and lived to the ethic Code of Bushido (“The way of the warrior”).

This editorial demonstrated what happens if one of the samurai's broke one of the code and the punishment in what progresses. Seppuku a highly ritualized performance, a process which is just as complicated as Chado (tea ceremony), with the principle difference is one is merely nauseated from too much green tea, and the other is dead.
