Scene from Oyobanu ude hidari no horimono, 1860 - Interesting kabuki scene from the play Oyobanu ude hidari no horimono" at the Ichimura Theater, a tale about the sculptor Hidari Jingoro. After drinking sake one night, Jingoro was amazed to find his sculpture of a beauty coming to life before his eyes. At left, the spirit of the Oyama Doll strikes a pose beneath a blossoming cherry tree. Second from right, Jingoro scratches his head in a puzzled manner, not sure what he is seeing, a cup of sake in his hand and a bottle on the floor nearby. At right, a young samurai throws out his hand at his side with an alarmed expression. The man second from left looks up with a worried frown, a sandal in his hand. The actors include Kawarazaki Gonjuro I as the doll and Ichikawa Kodanji IV as Hidari Jingoro. A rare four panel kabuki design.
