Maki-bashira (Cypress Pillar), Chapter 31 - Dramatic image of Yoshitsune gripping a pillar on the balcony of the Horikawa palace, where he had sought refuge from his brother, Yoritomo. As Yoritomo's retainer Tosa-bo Shoshun and his men approach, the young samurai grimaces angrily as he watches, a shower of arrows striking the pillar and landing nearby. Nicely composed and detailed. A handsome design.
