Scene from the Eight Dog Warriors, 1852 by Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861)

Original Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Print
Scene from the Eight Dog Warriors, 1852

Comments - Handsome kabuki scene from the play "Satomi Hakkenden" about the famous Eight Dog warriors who were the offspring of a mystical union between Princess Fuse and a dog. The brothers were raised separately and were unaware of each other's existence until they met unexpectedly as adults. Their last names all begin with "inu," which means dog in Japanese. The left panel features Arashi Kichisaburo III as Inuta Kobunga. The right panel includes Bando Shuka I as Inuzuka Shino, Seki Sanjuro III as Inukai Genpachi, and Otani Tomoemon IV as Konaya Bungobei. An interesting illustration from this classic samurai tale.
