Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
Fudo Myoo Threatens Yuten Shonin with His Sword, 1885

Comments - Fantastic triptych of the Buddhist deity Fudo Myoo threatening the young priest Yuten Shonin. A halo of light around his head, the deity thrusts his sword at the man's chin, grimacing angrily, his white sashes fluttering around him. The terrified priest clasps his hands, pleading for mercy. Fudo Myoo's heavenly attendants flank him, with Kongara Doji at left standing before a pillar of swirling flames above a surface of jagged rocks, gripping a spiraled cane. The red pigment of his skin has oxidized to a darker tone. At right, Seitaka Doji holds a long-stemmed lotus blossom, smiling benevolently as her long hair whips about her. A dramatic Yoshitoshi design, rarely seen, with delicate embossing in the priest's white robe and fine bokashi shading in the background.
