At the Battle of Fujikawa, Sarunosuke Makes a Name for Himself in His First Battle, 1847 - 1852 - Interesting triptych of the young Toyotomi no Hideyoshi, named Sarunosuke in his youth, presenting the gruesome decapitated heads of three enemies to a daimyo after the Battle of Fujikawa. Dressed in full armor, the warriors kneel on a beach at the water's edge, the three heads displayed on small wooden platforms with identification tags attached. The general sits on a folding stool at right wearing an impressive horned helmet topped with a dragon. The retainers surrounding him gesture excitedly towards the war trophies. A nice subject for a collector interested in the samurai tradition.
