Nichirai Shonin at the Battle of Kawanakajima, 1847 - 1852 - Great scene from the Battle of Kawanakajima along the banks of the Sai River when the forces of the Kai and Echigo Provinces faced off across the water. Takeda Shingen's men are gathered along the bank at left, Shingen wearing a red monk's robe over his armor and a helmet topped with a demon's head and a flowing white wig. A hail of arrows rains down over the water as samurai attempt to ford the river to engage the enemy, an archer at upper right firing from atop a rock. The priest Nichirai Shonin sits on a narrow spit of land at right, calmly reading from a scroll. An interesting interpretation of this famous battle. The first time we've offered this subject.
