Japanese Two Panel Screen: Battle Scene From Heike Wars
Tosa School painting depicting Yoshitsune leading troops down a steep mountain to flank the Genpei army. To test the grade of the mountain, Yoshitsune asked a local hunter if he ever saw deer on the slope. When the hunter replied yes, Yoshitsune decided that wherever deer could climb, his horsemen could ride.
Excellent detail, mineral pigments on gold leaf with gold dust.
