Scene from Azuma kudari gojusan tsugi, 1854

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene from the play "Azuma kudari gojusan tsugi" at the Kawarazaki Theater in Edo. At right, the monk Tenichibo kicks up his leg as he sprawls on the floor clutching a sword wrapped in brocade cloth, a worried expression on his face and a petition tucked inside his robe. At left, the female thief Hitomaru Oroku watches with a grin, carrying a sword in one hand. Her dark gray kimono features eerie skeletons, worn over a red under robe and tied with a yellow floral obi. The room opens onto a view of the sea, and the wall panels at left decorated with lotus blossoms and leaves. Bando Shuka I appears as Oroku. An intriguing image, nicely detailed.
