Seki Sanjuro III as Odera Shobei, 1859 - Interesting kabuki portrait of Seki Sanjuro III as Odera Shobei in the play "Kosode Soga Azami no Ironui." Shobei had broken into the shogun's treasury and stolen a huge amount of gold coins. Here, he scowls angrily as he holds out a package of money in one hand, a box filled with cash at his side. He wears a brown coat over an intricately patterned gray and brown kimono, and has a black cloth wrapped around his head. An expressive figure in a nicely detailed setting.
