I've recently begun to develop an interest in the Uesugi Clan following Kenshin's death. One thing in particular that I noticed is that the maedate of both Uesugi Kagekatsu and Naoe Kanetsugu incorporate an almost identical...cloud-like element supporting the larger image. Is this merely an artistic technique for displaying the image or does it have any sort of deeper significance? Knowing that Kanetsugu's 愛 was related to Aizen-Myoo, I thought that it perhaps made an association between the image and the divine...?
