Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Following victory in battle at Ishibashiyama (1180), three Heike generals are in pursuit of the Genji forces. One of the three, Kagetoki (center), is a turncoat. He convinces his commanders that the enemy is not in this spot by pointing at the two wood doves he has scared out of the hollow of a giant tree. In fact, the Genji commander Yoritomo and his men are hiding in the tree.
