Object Description
Meiji period Japanese color woodblock print with an image of a warrior. Shima Sakon Tomoyuki was once one of the principal kerai ('vassals') of Tsutsui Junkei (1549-84), later became a retainer of Ishida no Mitsunari (1560-1600), the most important figure on Toyotomi Hideyori's staff who fought against Tokugawa Ieyasu in the battle of Sekigahara in 1600. Here, Tomoyuki is hit by bullets in the battle of Sekigahara, his Buddhist rosary swinging in the air. The parallel to the gun battle for Ueno in 1868 would have been obvious, but not illegal.
