Hakoomaru Practicing Swordsmanship in the Snow, 1896 - Interesting scene from the famous tale of the Soga Brothers of the young Hakoomaru, the childhood name of Soga Goro Tokimune, practicing swordsmanship in the snow. He draws his sword back with both hands as he lunges forward, the sleeves of his red orange butterfly print robe tied back with a sash. Clumps of snow are scattered at his feet from slashing at a large mound of snow. The plum tree overhead is dotted with blossoms and buds, an early sign of spring. A handsome design, nicely detailed.
