In this year they will be rebuilding the Izumo Taisha,http://www.izumooyashiro.or.jp/hounou0017.html
As we all know the ceremonies for re-dedication for Shinto shrines require swords and tanto for dedication (sacrifice!) Would anyone on this forum know who wmong the many artists working today may have been granted the commissions for making these swords?
Has anyone seen images of the works either in progress or complete?
