Beauty Leaping from a Temple Verandah, 1864

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene filled with vignettes from different plays. At left, a beauty leaps from the verandah of a temple, an umbrella over her shoulder. Just above, two sumo wrestlers argue, one grabbing the other by the back of the neck. At lower right, a commoner stands atop a striped kimono pinning the swords of the men on either side of him to the ground. Nice expressive figures with fine detail in the architectural setting, and cherry blossoms framing the blue sky at upper right.
