kunisada III (1848 – 1920)
a young samurai with long flowing hair raises his sword overhead as if to attack his companions, while gripping his spear with his other hand. the warrior at left frowns at him, while the younger fellow at right seems unconcerned, smiling slightly as he looks back over his shoulder, casually resting his hands on his sword. a woman warrior stands at right, a naginata, leaning against her shoulder.
