巴御前様
平家討伐の為に挙兵した木曽義仲に、最後の刻まで付き添いし一騎当千の女武者といえば、
貴方様の事でございます。私は女人として義仲様に何処までも愛と共に生きられた御姿を思い、描かせて戴きました。「栗津ヶ原の別れ」は辛く悲しい一場面で、現代を生きる女性たちにも知って戴きたい心に残る最後の別れでございました。忘れ得ぬ女人巴様、天国での義仲様とのお幸せを心からお祈り申し上げて居ります。

Dearest Tomoe Gozen, You are the woman warrior who accompanied Kiso Yoshinaka to the last moment of his life as he raised his army to defeat the Heike. It was my honor to have drawn a portrait of yours imagining the way you lived with and love Yoshinaka to the very end. “The Parting of the Awazugahara” is a painful and sad scene, and that final parting was so touching that I would like women living today to know. I pray from the bottom of my heart for you, the unforgettable lady and your happiness with Yoshinaka in heaven.
