Yasuke Shield Ring with Odo Nyera Fie Kwan
Yasuke was the name given to a mysterious African warrior who achieved the status of samurai in 16th century Japan, the first foreign-born man to do so. Arriving in Kyoto (the capital at the time) in 1579, he soon became friends with and gained the trust of the powerful ruler Oda Nobunaga, the first of the three unifiers of Japan; Yasuke was part of Nobunaga's inner circle and rode alongside him in battle, attaining the rank of samurai within a year.
Each piece is hand-wrought by Nepalese artisans with an Adinkra symbol on both sides and in the center, surrounded by carved floral motifs. Every surface of the ring bears the mark of an artisan, making each piece one-of-a-kind.
