Model Heroes of Magic, 1879 by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)

Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Model Heroes of Magic, 1879

Comments - Fantastic kabuki triptych depicting a gathering of magicians calling up supernatural creatures. At right, a princess smiles over her shoulder as she unrolls a scroll with a large spider sitting on it. Ichikawa Danjuro IX appears at the young magician and thief Jiraiya at left, gripping a shakujou, a pilgrim's staff topped with a ringed finial. The men are surrounded with fantastic animals, including a giant toad, a slug, a dragon, a tiger and a bat. A terrific dramatic image, with expressive faces and fine detail, including delicate embossing in the beauty's white kimono collar and the scroll.
