Comments - Dramatic kabuki scene of a samurai carrying a beauty while traveling. He looks up at her soberly as she tilts her head with a sly grin, holding a sword with a spider with a cluster of red eyes on it behind her back. The man at left raises his woven hat above his head for a better look at the evil woman, glaring at her with a tight-lipped frown. The man at right frowns as he pushes up his kimono sleeve while wading through the reeds. An intriguing subject with lively color and fine line work in the hair.
