Poster print of a painting by Katsukawa Shuntei showing two samurai fighting on the banks of a river. Or is it the sea?
The warriors are Ichijō Jirō Tadanori and Notonokami Noritsune and they attack each other with tachi (older swords than katana), and wrestle with jujutsu or other budo moves. The spirit of bushido is strong within them as they grasp each other and tangle in the full armour (yoroi) that they wear. This Samurai armour is famous for its colour and the artist has captured this vividly.
