Re: [SCA-JML] two questions
- Noble Cousin!
Greetings from Solveig! I recommend that you look at quivers
appearing in battle paintings or in paintings of individuals wearing
armor. Please do not argue with what you discover. Japanese ideas of
suitability may not match your ideas of suitability.
Your Humble Servant

would be Mizuka no Oyadama 水舁の親玉. The "ka" is from verb kaku 舁く
"to bear; to carry". Mizu is water. Oyadama means "boss; chief; head".
Now whether or not it's periodish I don't know. Japanese language is
not my strong suit and I used my dictionaries to come up with this.
