500: Otani Oniji (Sharaku)

The actor Otani Oniji strikes an intense pose in the role of Yakko Edobei. A classic Sharaku kabuki portrait.

Interesting description of how ukiyo-e were made

It seems very little of certainty is known about Sharaku (this is his given name, though it is very likely no-one's real name; his family name, Tôshûsai, is rarely used at all). His works, caricatures of kabuki artists, appeared over the space of less than a year from mid-1794, and then he totally disappeared. Theories abound!

This puzzle has a luxury "Cloth touch" finish.
