Momotaro Subduing a Demon, 1856 - Fantastic scene from the folktale of Momotaro (Peach Boy), a boy who emerged from a peach and went off to Devil's Island (Onigashima) to carry off the treasure there, aided by animals he met along the way. Here, he subdues a leering demon, kneeling atop the sprawling creature as prepares to reach for his sword. He wears a red vest decorated with peaches over a fine suit of armor, the personal standard above his back also topped with a golden peach. A terrific image from this classic story, beautifully detailed.
