dai oban tate-e 16 7/8 by 12 1/8 in., 43 by 30.7 cm
This dramatic composition is not part of any of the print series currently in production. Unlike most woodblock prints which typically print the key block in black or dark grey, with this print the figure is partially outlined in orange in order to pull the figure out against the deep black background. There are other playful touches of color: the purple signature and title and the yellow seal pick up the color of her hair ornaments; while the geometrically patterned orange robe effectively contrasts with the background.
