The Ghost of Oiwa by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Ghost of Oiwa
Series; One Hundred Ghost Stories

The Ghost of Oiwa - Fantastic woodblock from one of the most famous Japanese ghost stories of all time, "Yotsuya Kaidan," a tale of betrayal, murder, and ghostly revenge. The ronin Tamiya Iemon attempts to kill his wife, Oiwa, by poisoning her, but the poison instead disfigures her. Seeing her horrible face in the mirror, she dies, but returns to haunt Iemon, who sees her hideous image everywhere and commits many murders trying to kill her ghost. Here, Oiwa's ghastly face appears in a paper lantern, her long black hair flowing around her and mysterious flames rising. A terrific design from this classic tale.

Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
Image Size - 10 1/4" x 7 3/8" + margins as shown
