More Samurai Geisha

Here she is preparing to set fire to some poor sap's hut with a Japanese turnip shaped arrow. I did a little research on this arrowhead and it seems that the Samurai were very skilled at producing weapons that inflicted the most damage upon their opponents, and at the same time scared hell out of them (which makes you shudder to think what would have happen if the Japanese had developed the bomb first). Anyway, this arrow had perforations cut in it, so it would make a whistling sound as it traveled through the air (you'd know it was coming). They could also be customised and used as rockets or fire arrows.
