  • Japanese: 蒙古襲来絵詞 (Mouko Shuurai Ekotoba)

The Mongol Invasion Scroll, or Môko Shûrai Ekotoba was commissioned in 1293 by Takezaki Suenaga, a warrior who had fought in both Mongol invasions.

Unlike most handscroll paintings of major military events, which were produced long afterwards as part of a narrative / storytelling tradition, Takezaki's Môkô Shûrai Ekotoba is roughly contemporary to its subject, having been produced as a record of service, and a petition for reward.
