Ghost of Shinchunagon Taira no Tomomori, 1867
Series; Thirty-six Matching Riddles

Ghost of Shinchunagon Taira no Tomomori, 1867 - Fantastic kabuki print of Otani Tomoemon V as the ghost of Taira no Tomomori, who committed suicide after his defeat at the Battle of Dan-no-ura by tying himself to an anchor and jumping into the sea. He is shown here with the anchor behind him, a rope entwined around it, his face a pale blue to indicate that he is a ghost. His long wet hair falls over his shoulders, and blood flows from wounds to his head and body. He wears a fine suit of armor with the butterfly crest of the Taira family on the chest plate. A terrific, expressive image with incredible fine detail in the hair. A great subject for a kabuki collector or anyone interested this famous samurai.

Image Size - 14 3/8" x 9 1/2" + margins as shown
