Original Nobukazu (1874 - 1944) Japanese Woodblock Print
Kintaro Riding a Bear and Yamauba
Comments - Terrific image of the wild boy Kintaro riding a bear, an enormous axe over his shoulder. Yamauba, the woman at left, raised Kintaro on Mt. Ashigara, where he learned to communicate with animals and became known for his amazing strength. The child smiles at his companion, who carries a walking stick and has a load of brushwood tied to her back, a mantle of leaves over her shoulder. At right, a waterfall cascades down the hillside. A great portrait of this folk hero.
