Yamato, Utabiko, Lady Kasuga and Princess Chujo, No. 8 - Dramatic scene from the story of Princess Chujo. Her evil stepmother Iwane Gozen stole a special statue of the Goddess Kannon under the care of the princess, then accused her of losing it as an excuse to get rid of Chujo. The princess was driven from the palace out into the cold by Lady Kasuga and her servant, shown here beating the princess with a pipe and a bamboo broom. The poor beauty collapses on the ground, her loose hair falling out onto the snow before her, Lady Kasuga's face contorted with rage. The inset above show the Goddess Kannon floating on a cloud. A compelling illustration, detailed with burnishing on the black kimono.
