Comments - Intriguing kabuki scene of Kumokiri Nizaemon kneeling on a tiled roof with an anguished expression as he holds out a small drawstring bag to the tobacco seller Kihachi. The vendor reaches for the bag with both hands, an angry frown on his face. The wooden frame work of scaffolding can be seen behind them, suggesting a construction site. A striking design with an interesting and unusual setting, detailed with fine shading at top and bottom.
