Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty Climbing through a Hole in a Wall, 1865

Comments - Intriguing kabuki scene of Subashiri Okuma climbing through a large jagged hole in a wall, one hand gripping the hilt of a dirk tucked into her obi. At left, Osaraba Oden grins back at her, holding her own short sword. At right, Kinezumi Okichi clenches her weapon between her teeth as she ties up her obi at her side. Pine branches hang over head and loose stones rest against a stone stairway at lower right. From left, the actors are Bando Mitsugoro, Ichimura Kakitsu, and Sawamura Tossho. An interesting and unusual subject.
