c1856 JIRAIYA? Tsunade? shape shifter Ninja Toyokuni III Kunisada Japanese prin - $400 - (Wailuku, HI)

Antique Japanese Print Ukiyo-e Woman riding Slug? Snail? 1852 Toyokuni III Utagawa Kunisada Jiraiya/Tsunade legend? Shape shifter magic, myth? Traditional story with modern follow up. Kunisada was noted as one the illustrators of the legend of JIRAIYA- NINJA who falls in love with TSUNADE. She is the lovely woman who does snail magic. I am guessing that this antique Japanese print depicts Tsunade riding on the snail. In modern time Jiraiya and Tsunade are characters in a Japanese cartoon stories. It's a story that is well known in Japan. Woman is shown dressed in elaborate kimono, hat and jewelry accessories riding on back of snail (or possibly a snail like creature such as a slug - I don't see a shell). This is an antique color Japanese woodblock print It measures approx 14.25 x 10" on thin rice paper mounted on a somewhat stronger backing very slightly larger sheet. In lovely condition. It came from the estate of a well known Michigan collector and dealer. It has the artist's name Toyokuni and dates (1789-1864) in the hand of the prior owner in pencil on the backing sheet. It also has the date 1852 The artist is listed as Toyokuni. The original Toyokuni passed away in 1825. This is one of his followers, Toyokuni III (real name Utagawa Kunisada). A beautiful antique image in beautiful condition. This is a striking and unusual image with a very old story line. Questions? Call or text (808) 280-9205 for additional details.
