More about this print: Taira no Tomoume, a blind warrior, uses second sight to see his enemies in his clan's war against the Minamoto, and in this, supposedly his death battle. He carries a poem slip as a talisman.

The verse reads: “From darkness I have wandered lost on to a darker path - the moon of heart is becoming clouded.” The fallen banner bears the crest of the Mori, who fought on the Minamoto side.

Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
