Comments - Terrific triptych illustrating the Battle of Seta in Omi Province taking place along the shore of Lake Biwa. Warriors fight on foot and on horseback, with a general on a dappled horse galloping into the fray at right. His helmet is topped with a dragon, and the banners behind him bear the paulownia crest of the Minamoto clan. At bottom center, two samurai are locked in combat, one wearing a gray monk's headdress while the other sports a helmet topped with peacock feathers. A lively scene with wonderful detail and a handsome natural setting with the mountains framing the water.
