Two bronzes from the Edo Period possibly depicting Minamoto no Yoritomo, the first Shogun of Japan and founder of the Kamakura Shogunate. The Figure is wearing typical court attire of the Heian Period bearing the royal Moko (Emblem) but wearing a Kazaori-Eboshi as military General. One figure is finely crafted, holding a carved ivory item which is probably broken. The other figure is not as finely crafted and shows signs of unfinished work, especially the chiseling, in the details of the face and clothing. The right Hand of the second figure is missing.
