Close up view of the dragon artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
I made a batch of these as a special project for a customer that needed this logo on wall scrolls for his dojo and as rewards for his students. I have a couple of them left over (I often make extras in case there are any flaws in the handmade silk, paper, or wall scrolls emerge).
This features a dragon in the background with the Bushido, Ishoa and Tomadachi Crosses in the foreground.
While the wall scroll was handmade, this is a print (not hand-painted). It was printed using a $4000 giclee fine art printer on special handmade paper with lots of embedded fibers and husks. It should last for a decade or longer (if you avoid hanging it in direct sunlight).
I have inquired and done research and could not find any copyright or trademark registration for this image. I am only charging a small amount for the materials, printing, and labor to build this wall scroll by hand, not the image. If you know more about this image, please let me know.

Gary's random little things about China:
When you sit down to eat at a restaurant in China, you will almost never see a bottle of soy sauce on the table like you might at a Chinese restaurant in the USA or UK.
In Chinese cooking culture, soy sauce is a seasoning reserved for use in the kitchen.
The fact that soy sauce can be found at Chinese restaurants outside of China probably comes from westerner confusion between Japanese food and Chinese food.
The most popular Japanese food outside of Japan is sushi, which of course is always served with soy sauce. This is the most likely reason that soy sauce migrated out of the kitchen on onto the table at your Chinese restaurant in the west.
