About The Art

Drinking from a decorated cup, samurai Yat Yomoshichi is prepared for battle with the samurai’s standard weaponry, the two swords and the spear. This print is third in the series.

The story that we now know as "the 47 Ronin" recounts the Ako Incident, a series of events taking place between 1701 and 1704. A tale of vengeance that embodied the principles of Bushido to their fullest effect, it soon became a Japanese cultural symbol, exemplifying core Bushido values of loyalty, honor and heroic courage. It would go on to inspire countless plays, poems, and artworks.
