Tomoeya Restaurant, 1852 - Great design of Bando Shuka I as the famous woman warrior Tomoe Gozen in the play "Hirakana Seisuiki." She looks back over her shoulder with a sly grin, her long hair flowing back over her shoulders. She wears a softly shaded kimono patterned with circular motifs over a red under robe and armor, clenching a blue cloth in her hand. The inset at upper left shows the back gate of the Kameido Tenmangu Shrine with visitors strolling about the grounds, while the still-life at right features small wooden bullfinches exchanged at the shrines as part of a festival each January, along with a spring of plum blossoms. Beautifully detailed with fine line work in the hair and embossing on the white collar.
