Titled 'female Samurai from the Shimazu clan' Martha has depicted this unnamed Onna-Musha as a modern day unassuming warrior.
The Onna-Musha lived within warring cultures in pre-modern Japan. These women engaged in battle alongside Samurai men and acquired indispensable skills in martial arts, archery and horse riding. They not only defended the household, family and honour in times of war but took part in offensive battles. They were considered members of the Bushi Samurai class and were just as courageous and capable as their male counterparts.
