Bloody Combat
Triptych

Spectacular triptych of a terrifying
battle scene of a samurai fighting with a warrior monk. The monk thrusts his
war club forward as the samurai counters with a spear called a naginata.
Several smaller weapons, including a saw, mallet, and sickle, are tied to the
top of the monk’s personal standard waving at his back. The standard also features
a Buddhist prayer wheel design. His opponent leaps on one foot, dodging the
blow, his face contorted with rage. A severed head lies on the ground next to a
fallen samurai. At the left, a woman warrior with flowing black hair pulls a
young tree from the ground. Rugged pine trees frame the scene and a large lake is
visible in the distance.

Beautifully detailed and colored. A
dramatic image that would be spectacular on your home or office wall.

We are very fortunate to be able to offer this magnificent
triptych. It is a marvelous antique find from our Edo collection of rare prints.
It would be a superb choice for a discerning collector. This offering is truly
a classic from the golden age of ukiyo-e.

 

Matted and framed, this triptych would make a stunning
presentation by itself or as an impressive addition to an arrangement with
other prints. It is one you will be proud to display in your home or office and
is bound to become a cherished family heirloom.
