Kumogakure (Behind the Clouds), Supplement 1 - Handsome kabuki portrait of Ichikawa Danjuro VIII as the samurai Matsugae Sekinosuke, grimacing angrily as he pushes up his sleeve, a knife in his other hand. His red stage makeup and flared sideburns add to his imposing appearance. Behind him, a teahouse can be seen along the edge of the water. A nice expressive figure.
