Original Meiji era Japanese Woodblock Print
Samurai in Battle

Comments - Great small format triptych depicting three samurai in the midst of battle. The fellow in the center grips a naginata with both hands as he grimaces angrily. The personal standard above his back is an eerie skull, and broken arrows protrude from his armor. The other two men wield swords as smoke billows across the night sky, the warrior at right carrying the bloody severed head of an enemy by the hair. An interesting design with expressive figures with wonderful detail in the armor.
