Scene from Soga Moyo Kameyama-zome, 1855

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene from the play "Soga Moyo Kameyama-zome" of the samurai Akabori Mizuemon holding up a small Buddhist statue in a cloud of smoke rising from an incense burner. He grimaces angrily at Judean's mistress Okura, hold looks down with a strange expression, iris blossoms in her hand. At left, Miki Juzaemon frowns as he watches the beauty, resting one hand atop the hilt of his sword. He wears a dee blue coat with a subtle burnished geometric pattern over a kimono tucked into striped pants with floral motifs. Irises bloom along the walkway behind the couple, with pine branches framing the scene above. From left, the actors are Kataoka Gado II, Nakamura Daikichi III, and Arashi Kichisaburo III. A handsome design with an attractive setting.
