JAPANESE TRIPPLE HEADED SPEAR YARI-SAYA

Late Edo Period (1603 - 1868)

Height 45cm diameter 42 cm ( 17.75 x 16.75 )

The large and very compact black bear hair yari-saya is in the form of a triple headed spear

The Yari is a spear which, due to its very long length was also used as a standard in ceremonial processions. The blade of the spear would be encased in a shaped cover, a yari-saya, of thick bear or horsehair or lacquer which when carried in a group high in the air above the samurai would have looked very dramatic.

Bibliography and Exhibition:

Two Yarisaya were exhibited at the Quai Branly exhibition in Paris November 2011 to January 2012 and at the Musee de la Civilisation, Quebec, Canada April 2012 to January 2013
