The Actors Iwai Kumesaburo Iii And Ichikawa Danjuro Vii, In The Roles Of
Atsumori And Naozane, In The Kabuki Play Ichinotani Futaba Gunki, 1852 (Kaei 5)

Fine impressions, colour and condition; unobtrusive binding holes.
This scene of the kabuki is related to a very famous episode of the battle of Ichinotani, 1184. Kumagai no
older Minamoto warrior kills Atsumori, as a warrior’s duty, but considering that the young enemy has the
same age of his own son, Noazane feels pain in his heart and eventually he becomes a Buddhist monk.
