Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Young Falconer Kakemono

Comments - Wonderful Edo era kakemono or vertical diptych of a young samurai with a falcon perched on his gloved hand. He looks to the side, a slender wooden crop held in his hand. The curious bird looks overhead with a keen eye, watching for prey. Falconry was a popular sport among the upper class during the Tokugawa period, a symbol of status and nobility. A terrific image of this favorite pastime of the samurai.
