The controversial print titled 'Seppuku' by Abcnt has turned heads and had gained so much attention in leiu of recent current events that its demand has once again began to skyrocket further.
The strong image of a police officer with his own Samurai Sword being inserted into his stomach is very powerful to say the least. Controversial and creatively designed, the deep hues in the officers uniform and the red blood dripping from the sword speak way over a thousand words. Many Abcnt fans believe this piece to be the most controversial of all they have created yet - we can not deny that we agree. .
Japanese Meaning of the word as defined by Wikipedia - "Seppuku"
Seppuku (切腹?, "stomach-cutting", "abdomen-cutting") is a form of Japanese ritual suicide by disembowelment. Seppuku was originally reserved only for samurai. Part of the samurai bushido honor classes code, seppuku was used either voluntarily by samurai to die with honor rather than fall into the hands of their enemies (and likely suffer torture) or as a form of capital punishment for samurai who had committed serious offenses, or performed because they had brought shame to themselves. The ceremonial disembowelment, which is usually part of a more elaborate ritual and performed in front of spectators, consists of plunging a short blade, traditionally a tantō, into the abdomen and drawing the blade from left to right, slicing open the abdomen.
