Kabuki Actor and Game of Ken

Comments - Interesting kabuki portrait of a man looking up over his shoulder with a slight sneer, his brows furrowed. He wears a green striped coat over a purple striped kimono and red under robe with a black collar, his thinning hair pulled back into a narrow topknot. The small figures at upper demonstrate various poses for the popular hand game called ken. An intriguing subject.
