Minamoto no Yoshiie

Minamoto no Yoshiie - Handsome portrait of the famous archer, General Minamoto no Hachiman Taro Yoshiie, on horseback near the Nakoso barrier. He composed a famous poem at the site, which reads "I thought this gusty barrier was a mere name, but why do the wild cherry blossoms so cover the path?" He sits proudly astride his dappled horse, wearing a gray robe with a delicately embossed scroll pattern and a green arm protector, his bow and sword at his side. Cherry blossom petals shower over him, inspiring his verse. Beautifully drawn with fine detail, with burnishing in the black cap and allover cloth embossing in the background.
