Rokurokubi (Long-necked Demon) by Tadanobu (1722 – 1777)

Tadanobu (1722 – 1777) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Rokurokubi (Long-necked Demon)

Comments - Fantastic illustration of a long-necked female demon, called a rokurokubi, looking over the edge of a folding screen. Appearing as ordinary women by day, at night rokurokubi can extend their necks several meters long to scare or spy on people. Here, the demon's head appears on a very slender sinuous neck, emerging from a bath tub behind the screen An incredible image of this supernatural creature. Ghost and demon woodblocks are highly collectible and quite sought-after. We've never before seen this subject in reprint.

Artist - Tadanobu (1722 – 1777)
Image Size - 10 7/8" x 7 3/8"
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
