This iconic depiction of high drama on sea – a stunning Japanese woodblock print by Utagawa Kuniyoshi from 1851 – shows the rescue of the samurai Minamoto Tametomo in the wake of a raging storm. From the shipwrecked samurai to the wild, crashing waters, colossal “crocodile-shark”, and luminescent half-man, half-bird creatures (known in Japanese as tengu – mischievous supernatural beings and renowned swordsmen), each element leaps up and out towards you to provide for some serious note case envy.
