Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of Bando Shuka as Shiraito of the Hashimotoya Restaurant, looking up with a grin as she bites her tongue, holding up a gold coin she has just taken from a paper wrapper. She wears a red striped kimono with blue checked sleeves over a red under robe with a geometric pattern and a tie-died collar. The few loose whisps of hair framing her face give her a slightly disheveled appearance. A nice large expressive figure, detailed with fine line work in the hair.
