Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a woman warrior and two warriors struggling over a red cloth banner patterned with swirling clouds. At left, the beauty grabs one end of the banner as she rests her naginata against her shoulder. Her hair falls loosely over her shoulders, a white sash tied around her forehead and arrows protruding from her robes as is she has just been in battle. In the center, Hachiro Tametomo frowns with worry, the cloth draped over his shoulders. At right, the samurai Oniyasha cowls angrily as he tries to jerk the banner away. Undulating waves fill the background beneath a shaded sky. Nice expressive figures in a handsome setting, detailed with an embossed geometric pattern on the white kimono.
