Sisters Avenging Their Father's Death - Fantastic triptych from the story of the courtesan Miyagino and her younger sister Shinobu battling with their father's murderer, Shiga Danshichi. The two women swore to avenge his death, and after secretly training in the martial arts, challenged Shiga to a duel. They are shown here fighting the warrior in an arena enclosed by a bamboo fence, with samurai and nobleman gathered to watch. Scowling, Shiga leaps on one foot as he grabs Miyagino's naginata in one hand while wielding his sword in the other. Shinobu counters his sword strike using a chain attached to a weight. The beauties wear white kimono with the sleeves tied back out of the way, and white sashes tied around their heads. An incredible depiction of these heroic women, who succeeded in killing Shiga and achieving revenge.
