People(Samurai, Hermit)

Many of Tsuba were made based on legends, traditions, or famous battles motifs with human designs. Sages and Mountain hermits are often depicted as motifs for Tsuba. As they assume composed attitude, people might have admired them.

Or, you can find another type of Tsuba which describes battles with fighting Samurai. There might be some people of posterity who were inspired by those warriors’ courageous look.
