Comments - Great scene from a play at the Meijiza or Meiji Theater of a man in an exotic costume holding a mask of a snarling demon topped with a dragon. He glares angrily at the beauty at left, who leans forward with her hands gripping a sword at her side, her sleeves tied back with a white sash. At right, a man holds out a gun in one hand as he watches the fellow in the center. At left, an ornately decorated drum surrounded by flames with wish-fulfilling jewels at the top rests on a black lacquer stand. An intriguing design, nicely detailed.
