The Battle of Kawanakajima
Vermillion Battle Surcoat Version
This works represents the most famous scene at the Battle of "Kawanakajima", which is famous for its fierceness.
Fighting in the vanguard, Kensin unbelievably dashed into Shingen's main camp with only a few troops. Most of our efforts have been made to recreate the vivid feeling of adrenalin when Kensin waved around his sword at his rival, Shingen, on horseback.
Kensin believed deeply in Buddhism and even thought himself the incarnation of Buddha. In order to represent Kensin's magnetism, we have added golden color to Kensin's armor and clothes and also recreated the katana without its tsuba. Only people who do not fear being hurt will use a katana without a tsuba, which is the part of a katana protecting one's hand from rival's sword in battles and ones own hand from slipping along the blade.
On the base of the works, you can see the Japanese word, which was Kensin's symbol/Mon painted on the troops' flag.
The statue of Kensin is excellent by itself, though perfectly complimented together with Shingen's statue, the fighting scene can be represented completely and it will give you the feeling of being at a live performance.
The helmet is made with the reference of the actual armor of "Uesugi Kensin" which is placed in the Uesugi Shrine (Yonezawa shi, Yamagata Prefecture of Japan). We have created the helmet part (miniature form) based on the historical documents of the real helmet.
