A Japanese woodblock depiction of Guan Yu:

The story of the life of Baron Kan U (Guan Yu) from the famous fourteenth-century novel, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, is depicted in this print by Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861). In this scene the wounded Baron is portrayed as being so stoic that he can play the board game Go while the famous Dr. Ka Da (Hua Da) operates on his arrow-wounded arm. Although obviously fanciful, the story is portrayed in such rich detail as to possess an air of believability. (Click on each panel for larger version.)

Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861):
"Portrayal of the Physician Ka Da Scraping the Bone of Kan U to Treat an Arrow Wound"

(Hua Da hone o kezurite Guan Yu ya-kizu o ryoji suru zu), 1853.
Color woodblock print, ôban triptych, 15 in. x 10 in. each.
