Duel between Uesugi Kenshin and Takeda Shingen - Terrific kabuki triptych depicting a duel between Uesugi Kenshin and Takeda Shingen during the Battle of Kawanakajima. In the center, Kenshin gallops into the enemy camp on a brown horse, swinging his sword at his enemy in a surprise attack. Seated behind the tent walls of his encampment, Shingen deftly thrusts out his iron battle fan to deflect the blow. Shingen wears a magnificent battle helmet topped with a horned demon and flowing white wig, the hair delicately embossed. One of Shingen's retainers leaps to his feet at left, gripping his spear with both hands. A dramatic scene with large expressive figures and vibrant color.
