Onoe Kikugoro as the Boatman Tamaya
Series; Present-day Actor Fans
Onoe Kikugoro as the Boatman Tamaya - Terrific kabuki portrait of Onoe Kikugoro as the boatman Tamaya, staring over his shoulder with a worried frown, his eyes wide. He wears a blue print kimono over a red under robe, a dotted towel draped over his shoulders. The portrait appears on an uchiwa or rigid fan with a pink background, with a package with a blue label below. A fine, large expressive figure in an interesting format. A great bold design.
