Frightened Beauty

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a frightened beauty scrambling backwards on the ground, throwing her hand before her in self-defense. One sleeve of her blue kimono is pushed down to the waist, revealing a red tie-dyed robe. Her long hair is pulled back into a thick ponytail tied with ribbons, a few locks falling over her shoulders. Rugged mountains beneath the evening sky create a dramatic setting. A handsome design, nicely detailed with burnishing on the black obi and collar.
