Comments - Interesting scene from the kabuki play "Irohagana Kane no Sashimono" at the Nakamura Theater of Onchi Sakon and Hokkeyama Kesataro fighting over a length of fabric with a design of phoenixes. At left, Sakon looks to the side with a worried frown as he holds up one edge of the cloth. At right, the rogue Kesataro grabs hold of the edge of the fabric, frowning unhappily as he prepares to draw his sword. He wears a striking black robe with a dragon on it over armor trimmed with fringe. The mouth of a cave can be seen behind them, with foamy waves lapping at the shore below. From left, the actors are Kataoka Gado II and Onoe Waichi II. A handsome design with expressive figures.
