A Japanese Woodblock Print UNFRAMED


A Japanese Diptych Woodblock Print ca 1840 - 1880. Yoshitsune's ship which was the flagship of the Minamoto fleet. Yoshutsune sits under a beautiful canopy in the centre of the boat wearing a battle helmet topped with horns and a gold dragon. He is surrounded by warriers in full armour with grave expressions. Drapery featuring the paulownia mon or crest of Minamoto Clan hangs alongside the ship and tasselled banners and standards flutter overhead. In the background on the right boats are landing samurai along the rocky shore. An incredible scene, beautifully detailed.
