Original Meiji era Japanese Woodblock Print
Attacking a Nobleman

Comments - Dramatic kabuki scene of a man attacking a nobleman with a dirk, raising the weapon high above his head as he glares at his intended victim. The nobleman recoils, throwing his hand out defensively. He wears a green floral robe with an unusual ruffled collar, and a cap with small wings at the side. An inset features text, set against a red background with pink blossoms and an ornate lantern trimmed with beads and tassels at upper right. An interesting design.
