The 47 Ronin, Act 8 - Lovely depiction of the eighth act of the classic kabuki play "Kanadehon Chushingura" illustrating the bridal journey of the lovely young Konami and her mother, Tonase. They are traveling to Yuranosuke's country estate near Kyoto for her betrothal. Here, the travelers are shown pausing to rest as they reach the top of a hill. At right, Tonase sits on a fabric-covered trunk, smoking a pipe, as Konami shields her eyes with her hand, enjoying a view of the majestic peak of Mt. Fuji rising above bands of clouds. She wears a red-orange kimono patterned with grasses and blossoms, tied with a black obi. Vines twine around the pine tree at upper right. Beautifully detailed with light embossing on the white kimono collars and trim, and burnishing in the black obi and kimono collar.
