logo is an original 'tegata' handprint by the sumo wrestler Takahanada
signed with both his name (in Kanji characters on the right) and my name
(in katakana syllabic writing on the left). The tegata was made for me
in 1991. Takahanada changed his fighting name to Takanohana (after his
father's wrestling name) when he reached the ozeki rank in 1993. In November
1994, he was promoted to the highest rank of yokozuna - the third youngest
wrestler to do so. To make a tegata, a sumo wrestler taps his hand in
red ink and then puts his handprint on a 'shikishi' (the standard white
paper used for autographs). He then later signs his name with a brush
pen in black ink.
Use of this logo does not imply any connection with, or endorsement of
my services by, the sumo wrestler Takanohana.
