2. The horseman (1885)

Hostile forces are driven to the sea during the battle of Ichi no Tani in 1184. The pursuer Naozane makes a grand entry on the beach. A flock of sparrows flights near his fan.

He has challenged a samurai (the red dot at the left). The challenged fighter may not keep his back to the rival and turns. Then Noazane notices the young age of the battler, but he has to kill him anyway. He feels ashamed and becomes a Buddhist priest as penance.
