Format Oban (9 5/8" X 14 1/2")
Comment Burnishing on the bow, the hat and the gauntlets
The nue, a monster having the head of a monkey, the body of a tiger and the tail of a serpent, was flying over the Imperial Palace shrieking horribly. It does not appear in this design, but the palace is lit by an eerie glow as Yorimasa lets his arrow fly.
Price $450.
