Samurai Threatening a Tattooed Amputee, 1863 by Yoshiiku (1833 - 1904)

Original Yoshiiku (1833 - 1904) Japanese Woodblock Print
Samurai Threatening a Tattooed Amputee, 1863

Comments - Unusual kabuki scene of a samurai threatening a tattooed man with one arm amputated. The samurai raises a wooden practice sword above his head with an angry scowl as the tattooed man stares up at him out of the corners of his eyes, a string of prayer beads in his hand. His upper body tattoo depicts a dragon with red blames. From left, the actors are Ichikawa Kodanji as Kisaburo and Kataoka Juzo as Otori Ippei. An intriguing subject and a rare depiction of an amputee in a kabuki print.
