Warrior Zen by Trevor Leggett

From Warrior Zen by Trevor Leggett
Hokusai: The  war-god Marishi (from India) using bow, spear, sword and fan with his various arms without confusion, while balancing on the back of his 'vehicle',  a wild boar. This is to illustrate  ki filling the  whole body and each single function  without being concentrated to the detriment of the others. (Hokusai  Manga volume 6, image of Marishi Japanese  Illustrated  Book 216/
