Sato Masakiyo on a Tiger Hunt, 1860 by Kuniteru II (1829 - 1874)

Original Kuniteru II (1829 - 1874) Japanese Woodblock Print
Sato Masakiyo on a Tiger Hunt, 1860

Comments - Fantastic depiction of one of Sato Masakiyo's tiger hunts in Korea. Masakiyo (the real-life Kato Kiyomasa) was one of the three senior commanders during the Seven-Year War with Korea, and had the opportunity to hunt the beasts while there. In this encounter, Masakiyo boldly thrusts his spear at the animal's chest as it snarls and bears its fangs, looking up with bulging eyes. He wears a red vest patterned with his circular crest over his armor, and a horned battle helmet, balancing atop at rocky outcropping as he attacks the tiger. A waterfall rushes through the center of the scene, framed by snow-covered bamboo and pines. Incredible detail in the tiger's striped fur. A great illustration from this famous tale. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has this image in its collection.
