Lord Yoritomo's Hunting Party Assembles in the Foothills of Mt. Fuji, circa 1839 - 1841
Comments - Fantastic scene of Yoritomo's hunting party assembling at Suso Moor at the base of Mt. Fuji in 1193. Yoritomo sits in the center, a retainer holding an umbrella above him and another carrying a standard topped by the paulownia blossom crest of the Minamoto family. Archers mounted on horseback wear the traditional curved woven hats worn during upper-class hunts, and wait patiently while the rest of the group arrives up the hilltop at left. Mt. Fuji towers behind the men, filling the background with its imposing presence. A terrific depiction of this historic event.
