Miyamoto Musashi Killing a Giant Yamazame (1830) - Fine Art Print

Size Guide
  • Capturing the beauty of the original artwork

    Every one of our prints is made using the Giclee printing process, for a museum-quality look and feel that does justice to the original art.

    Giclee printing is the gold-standard for preserving the meticulous detail and stunning colors that we love in the Japanese masters. All our prints are fade and fingerprint resistant, so you can enjoy their beauty for years to come.

    We chose to offer 12”x18” (30cm x 45cm) as this was closest to the “chuban” size sheets used for woodblock prints historically.

    All of our prints come with matte finish for a more authentic appearance.

    Framing Options:

    • Unframed
    • Framed - black
    • Canvas wrap

    Ready-to-Hang and Made to Last

    Mounting brackets are included and centered on our framed prints and canvas wraps.

    All of our prints are made to last, with fade-resistant colors and materials. See how they arrive in the unboxing videos below.

  • About the Art

    Legendary samurai swordsman Miyamoto Musashi pins an enormous writhing Yamazame to the floor as he applies the fatal thrust with his spear.

    Musashi, known for his deadly dueling skills and for wielding two swords at once, was also philosopher and writer of the Book of the Five Rings. A real historical figure, he is often represented in ukiyo-e prints in fantastic feats of combat and martial skill, against both real and mythical creatures.

    In this print, we see Musashi wrestling a Yamazame, a strange combination of various animals often seen in Japanese folklore. This particular monster seems to be a chimera with features of an alligator, snake and tiger rolled into one.

    This is a classic Kuniyoshi print, full of energy, dynamism, detail and violent action.
