Bando Hikosaburo V as the Sumo Wrestler Tetsugadake - Great kabuki portrait of Bando Hikosaburo V as the sumo wrestler Tetsugadake, who is holding up a sign to suggest that his rival Inagawa purposely lose a match to him the next day. He sneers as he looks over his shoulder out of the corners of his eyes. He wears a dark blue kimono over a red under robe, a white cloth tied around his neck. A diamond-shaped inset above features a view of the sea frames by a stone mark and pine branches. A nice expressive figure, detailed with fine line work in the hair.
