Seen on the left margin of the tray are several thin, unfurled flags of various colors. Fencing or fortified wooden walls can be seen in the right foreground, possibly the outer ramparts of another unseen, protected architectural dwelling off to the right. A single tree, now bare of foliage, rises above a sword wielding Samurai warrior, bearing down upon his enemies below and inflicting obvious, clear damage to his opponents. The fearless and militarily gifted Samurai warriors populate the interior basin of the paper mache tray, with no less than nine warriors depicted and locked in mortal, deadly personal combat.
