This painting is inspired by Musashi, a Japanese swordsman, writer, philosopher and ronin. He was a double-bladed swordsman and he wrote a book called _The Book of Five Rings_. Although it is about martial arts in general, some businesses use this book as a manual for philosophical approaches to run a company. I wanted to explore the concept of business and what inspires/motivates people to be on top. Are people motivated by competition? What drives people to want to be their best? I am fascinated by people’s survival tactics, mental warfare and sparing tactics...techniques that people use to better themselves in business. Sometimes people function thru community and compassion by inspiring others and wanting to see others succeed. Others, however, prefer the stabbing-in-the-back method. The psychology behind people’s motivation to succeed and be their best is interesting. .
.
If you're curious, The Book of 5 Rings is divided into 5 parts:
1) Book of Earth: Learning different strategies to fight, timing (knowing when to attack and when to not attack)...not overusing a weapon during battle because an opponent will spot your weak point.
.
2) Book of Water: The meaning of water in relation to life is flexibility. Water demonstrates natural flexibility as it changes to conform with the boundaries which contain it, seeking the most efficient and productive path. So, one should shift between disciplines, methods, and options when presented with new information. A person should master many aspects of life allowing them to possess both balance and flexibility.

3) Book of Fire: heat of battle, and discusses matters such as different types of timing

4) Book of Wind: Exploration of errors through dif schools of martial arts.

5). Book of Void: "By knowing things that exist, you can know that which does not exist." Zen-influenced thoughts on consciousness and the correct mindset.
