Minamoto no Yorimitsu Facing Shuten-doji, 1887 by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)

Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Minamoto no Yorimitsu Facing Shuten-doji, 1887

Comments - Fantastic triptych from the legendary tale of the Demon of Oeyama, the horrible Shuten-doji, who kidnapped young beauties and held them hostage in his lair on Mt. Oe near Kyoto. The great warrior Minamoto no Yorimitsu (Raiko) and his men traveled to the demon's hideout in order to kill him. After lulling him into a drunken stupor, Raiko will cut off the monster's head. Here, Shuten-doji relaxes on a verandah overlooking the valley, holding a giant cup of sake, surrounded by beauties. In the center, Raiko performs a dance for him, hopping on one foot and waving his fan. From left, the actors are Nakamura Fukusuke as Watanabe Tsuna, Ichikawa Gonjuro as Yorimitsu, Bando Shucho as a beauty, Kataoka Ichizo as Shuten-doji, and Arashi [?] as a princess.
