Original Meiji era Japanese Woodblock Print
Struggling over a Banner
Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a woman warrior and two samurai struggling over a banner. The beauty grabs the cloth with one hand, trying to pull in away as she grimaces at the samurai at upper left. He glares at her angrily, dressed in a red kimono patterned with a dragon, his short hair sticking up atop his head. The man below draws his sword as he eyes the woman steadily. Nice expressive figures detailed with fine line work in the hair.
