"Hm, not as much as I would want to, perhaps," her smile was wry. "I've been fairly busy with other things too... especially since the Dragon do not have any dojo to trained courtiers. Artists, on the other hand... well, not artisans as such, I suppose, but the Agasha are fairly artistic actually."

"I had heard that. And no trained courtiers?" That seemed odd to him. Courtly life was just as important as other pursuits within the Scorpion. The thought of a clan having no one dedicated to such struck him as so alien a concept.

He wondered if that was perhaps why this woman had been married into that clan. He made a mental note of it, amd moved on.

"Does the harsher climate reflect in the artwork produced?"

"The courtiers of the Dragon are either trained outside the clan, or given some instruction from their seniors who have served in the courts." For a clan like the Dragon who usually cared little for the machinations of court, it was not really surprising that they approached such in a different manner than the other clans. At least not to Utsusemi who had been growing more used to the oddities for her new clan.

"Sometimes it does," she admitted, smiling faintly. "Not usual to reflect the world around us in our art, after all... the styles I have seen among my kin tend to lean more towards the simplistic, with a greater focus on harmony. Though there was one exception..."

She turned thoughtful. "I once saw a group of Togashi monks create the most beautiful, most intricate mandala I had ever seen, using coloured sand. For hours they painstakingly worked on it, with such great care and attention to detail. At the end of the day, it was completed, and it's colours and pattern were... just so lovely, I have no words to describe it. They admired their craft for a while, and then brushed over the sand, ruining their own work. I was told that it was a lesson in the impermanence of beauty, and the world..."
