Nobunaga's Death Mask II

Statue of Luis Frois
Here is the Honnoji version from Luis Frois:

There is was no mention at all about Nobunaga's head being taken.  Nothing was written about Yasuke taking Nobunaga's head either.  In fact, if Yasuke did take Nobunaga's head, it would have been noted by the Jesuits.  Yasuke probably went to Myokakuji to inform Oda Nobutada the news of his father's death.  Now what if Yasuke did have Nobunaga's head?  The head would likely decay quickly due to the extreme heat and humidity at the time.  I think the death mask is a hoax and should be left to the midnight hours of conspiracy theories on the History Channel.  I have mentioned this before and still remind people that Nobunaga's body was never found.

Tenka no tame!
