Minamoto no Yoritomo - Handsome portrait of the twelfth-century Shogun Minamoto no Yoritomo. He sits on a fur-covered stool, looking over his shoulder with a rather arrogant expression as he fans himself. He wears a fine kimono over his armor, tucked into voluminous hakama pants, and a tall yellow court cap. He is armed with two swords, one in a tiger skin case, and a quiver of arrows is visible at his back. Nicely detailed.
