This print captures the moment that Koman, the heroine who was given the responsibility of protecting the Minamoto banner from their sworn enemies of the Taira clan, jumps into Biwa Lake to avoid being captured. The treasured Minamoto banner is clutched in her teeth. Koman is unluckily spotted by a pleasure barge, which is carrying Sanemori of the Taira clan. Kuniyoshi illustrates the large, luxurious barge with vibrant colors and beautiful, golden decorations. The elegantly stylized sea foam resembles animal claws and hint at the forthcoming danger Koman will encounter.
