Enraged Boatman Higuchi Jiro Kanemitsu - Terrific kabuki design of the enraged Higuchi Jiro Kanemitsu lifting an anchor above his head as a weapon while another man grabs him around the waist from behind. After the death of his lord, the twelfth century Minamoto warrior Yoshinaka, Higuchi no Jiro Kanemitsu rescued his master's son and escaped disguised as a boatman. His long hair blows wildly about his head, and he is bleeding from a cut to the forehead. Two other boatmen watch him with worried expressions, each still holding his oar. A pine tree frames a view of the water behind them where boats with glowing red lanterns can be seen. A great bold design with large expressive figures.
