'Nakano' Framed Original Artwork

'Nakano' Framed Original Artwork

Amy Ho

Female Samurai 'Nakano'

This piece is named after Nakano Takeko (19th Century) who boldly joined a fierce group of women who fought alongside their male counterparts in the siege of Aizu Wakamatsu Castle in 1868. Facing certain death at the hands of their enemies they fearlessly dove into battle. When their enemies saw that these warriors were women they shouted to their team to take the prisoners alive. This brief minute pause gave the ladies the upper hand and Nakano was able to kill five or six men with her weapon of choice, the naginata (spear/sword hybrid). She was unfortunately quickly shot by her enemies following this. Her sister bravely beheaded her so that the enemy could not steal her head for a trophy possession. So thoughtful.
