Scene from Kamagafuchi Futatsu-domoe, 1857 - Great kabuki scene from the play "Kamagafuchi Futatsu-domoe" at the Nakamura Theater in Edo. At right, the thief Ishikawa Goemon grimaces angrily at the courtesan Takigawa, his arms folded firmly across his chest and tucked into his sleeves. His black robe has been pushed down to the waist, revealing a white under robe with an embossed geometric pattern over armor and full purple pants. The beauty grins back at him as she holds a vase filled with chrysanthemums. Her kimono features a kusudama, a floral ornament with colorful ribbons. A large trunk sits against the back of the room, the wall panels decorated with medallions of irises, chrysanthemums, clematis, and cherry blossoms. An attractive design, detailed with a burnished scroll pattern on the black robe.
