Comments - Terrific kabuki scene of Arashi Tomisaburo II as the Heavenly Woman of Itsukushima in the play "Keisei Suo no Dairi." She rises up above the undulating waves on a jet of water, looking to the side with an angry expression. She wears an elegant robe with a dragon on it, trimmed with layers of ruffles, and a fantastic headdress topped with a torii gate and a dragon. At upper left, a sleeping baby in a basket hangs from a branch of a blossoming cherry tree. Includes faint embossing on the blossoms. A fascinating design with wonderful detail, in the full oban size rarely seen in Osaka kabuki prints.
