Scene depicted: the best panel from this fantastic winter triptych! In this scene, a massive tiger comes out to face off against head samurai, Watônai, after already mauling and killing one of his troops. Incredible artwork of the lifeless samurai warrior dangling from the jaws of the giant beast! Would look magnificent framed and mounted!
