Takeda Shingen and Uesugi Kenshin, 1851 - 1852 - Great depiction of Takeda Shingen and Uesugi Kenshin battling in the river at Kawanakajima. At left, Kenshin lunges forward from astride his brown horse, thrusting his sword at Shingen, who deftly blocks the blow with his war fan. Shingen wears a striking helmet topped with a horned demon and a white wig, his retainers leading his dappled horse through the deep, swiftly moving current. The flag above his back reads "Swift as the wind, silent as a forest, fierce as fire, and immovable as a mountain," a phrase taken from Sun Tzu’s "The Art of War." The samurai on the light tan horse at upper left is Hatsukano Denemon. A fantastic design with wonderful detail and movement. The first time we've offered this subject.
