"About the Japanese fighting spirit, in the feminine version – portrait of a young Japanese woman."
Yamato-damashii (大和魂, "Japanese spirit") or Yamato-gokoro (大和心, "Japanese heart/mind") represents, in Japanese language, the cultural values and the qualities and characteristics of the Japanese people, especially honor and value.
In this Asian girl painting, Yamato-damashii is represented in its feminine version: the common-sense wisdom, prudent judgment, resourcefulness, intelligence, essential purity, a resolute spirit of a young Asian woman.
This painting is an epitome of pure, feminine beauty - that youthfulness that brings grace, power, courage along with it. Because, in the end, what constitutes a beautiful woman?
Her confident gaze, her lips that are able to say wise words, her fine features? Not just that, but so much more.
Her desire to fight and win. The willingness to compete. The refuse to give up. Determination. Intense desire to excel.
No matter how strenuous or painfull the challenges of a woman may be, she has to always bring to light her fighting spirit and be determined to follow through and succeed, no matter the costs!
This Asian girl painting reminds about the meaning of the Yamato spirit of a young girl: the sum of both power, determination, and compassion, kindness, emotion, purity.
