Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of two men fighting on stone steps. The yakko or footman at left frowns worriedly as he grips his sword with both hands. His opponent holds his weapon upright, a small cloth-wrapped parcel clenched between his teeth. Green leaves frame the dark night sky above the grassy slope on either side of the stairs. Expressive figures in a handsome setting.
