Tametomo Resisting Arrest - Fantastic portrait of the great warrior Minamoto no Tametomo resisting arrest at Ishiyama hot spring, using a heavy wooden beam as a weapon. After suffering arrow wounds in battle, the defeated samurai sought healing at the hot spring of Ishiyama, but an informer revealed his location. He stands with feet firmly spread, his muscles bulging as he grips the beam, glaring defiantly at his enemies. Clouds of steam rise from the waters of the spring behind him, and he wears a cotton robe tied loosely about his waist. This wonderful Kuniyoshi series illustrates episodes from the novel "Bow of the Full Moon," a fictionalized account of Tametomo's life. A terrific image of this legendary warrior.
