Goat: Yasuda Sakubei Attacking Nobunaga at Honno-ji - Dramatic scene from the last moments in the life of the great warrior Oda Nobunaga, just before his death at Honno-ji Temple in 1582. While at the temple with only a few of his guards, Nobunaga was surrounded by enemy troops. Here, the samurai Yasuda Sakubei runs forward with a spear to attack Nobunaga behind a standing screen as flames and smoke billow across the room. Nobunaga's loyal retainer Hori Ranmaru hurries to assist him, running in with a polearm. Ranmaru killed Yasuda, but perished in the flames along with his master. A shepherd and a goat, the featured zodiac animal for this image, appears on the standing screen at left. A lively illustration from this historic event.
