Traveler Carrying a Boulder, 1855 - Interesting kabuki portrait of a young man traveling with what looks like a large boulder tied to his back with rope. He leans heavily on the rustic wooden pole of a bamboo garden fence as he makes his way up a slope, staring back over his shoulder with a rather crazed expression, his hair hanging shaggily at the sides of his face. A sword wrapped in brocade cloth rests ground below. An expressive figure and an unusual scene.
