Series; The Faithful Hearts
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

The Faithful Hearts - The companion to Kuniyoshi's "True Loyalty of the Faithful Samurai," the "Faithful Hearts" depicts the outstanding loyalty and honor of the families and friends of the 47 ronin. Even though they weren't part of the attack against Moronao, the wives, daughters, friends, and servants of the ronin were drawn into drama as well. This series celebrates the sacrifice, determination, and enduring devotion of those the ronin left behind. An interesting series and a nice complement to Kuniyoshi's "True Loyalty of the Faithful Samurai."
