Akasaka Kusunoki Warrior Barricading Woodblocks Woodcuts


23"x19" (58x48cm) Premium Frame

FSC real wood frame with double mounted 16x12 print. Double mounted with white conservation mountboard. Frame moulding comprises stained composite natural wood veneers (Finger Jointed Pine) 39mm wide by 21mm thick. Archival quality Fujifilm CA photo paper mounted onto 1mm card. Overall outside dimensions are 23x19 inches (584x482mm). Rear features Framing tape to cover staples, 50mm Hanger plate, cork bumpers. Glazed with durable thick 2mm Acrylic to provide a virtually unbreakable glass-like finish. Acrylic Glass is far safer, more flexible and much lighter than typical mineral glass. Moreover, its higher translucency makes it a perfect carrier for photo prints. Acrylic allows a little more light to penetrate the surface than conventional glass and absorbs UV rays so that the image and the picture quality doesn't suffer under direct sunlight even after many years. Easily cleaned with a damp cloth. Please note that, to prevent the paper falling through the mount window and to prevent cropping of the original artwork, the visible print may be slightly smaller to allow the paper to be securely attached to the mount without any white edging showing and to match the aspect ratio of the original artwork.

EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative woodblock print captures the legendary moment when the samurai Kusunoki Masashige and his loyal followers barricaded themselves into Akasaka Castle during the Mongol Invasion of Japan in 1274. The image, created between 1804 and 1812, showcases the indomitable spirit of the Japanese warrior class in the face of overwhelming adversity. Kusunoki Masashige, a renowned samurai from the Kanto region, had pledged his allegiance to Emperor Go-Daigo, who was then in hiding from the Mongol invaders. When the Mongol army approached Akasaka Castle, Kusunoki and his men bravely chose to make their stand there, despite knowing that their chances of survival were slim. The print depicts Kusunoki and his warriors standing defiantly atop the castle walls, their faces etched with determination and resolve. The castle gates are closed, and the defenders are shown readying their weapons, prepared to fight to the last man. The background is filled with the chaos of battle, with smoke rising from the castle and the sounds of clashing swords and cries of soldiers filling the air. This woodblock print is a testament to the bravery and sacrifice of the samurai class in Japan's history. The intricate details of the print, from the textured armor and facial expressions to the dynamic composition, bring the scene to life and transport us back to a time of war and honor. The print is a valuable historical document and an enduring work of art that continues to inspire awe and admiration.
