The Secrets of Strategy: Yoshitsune and Benkei at Suma after the Battle of Ichi-no-Tani, 1853 - Handsome scene of Minamoto no Yoshitsune and his retainers at Suma after their victory over the Taira in the Battle of Ichi-no-Tani. The loyal warrior monk Benkei sits on a fur skin at lower left, his white monk's mantle draped over his armor. According to legend, Yoshitsune erected the notice board next to the blossoming cherry tree at right with a poem stating that anyone who cut a branch from the tree must have a finger cut off, which could also be interpreted as if you kill someone else's son, you must also kill your own. Nicely detailed with embossing on Benkei's white mantle. A rarely seen Kuniyoshi series and the first time we have offered this design.
