Reproduction of ukiyo-e style woodblock print “Takiyasha the Witch and the Skeleton Spectre” by Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798–1861) from Edo period.

Kuniyoshi was known for his depictions of historical and mythical scenes, and combined both in portraying the tenth-century princess Takiyasha summoning a skeleton spectre to frighten Ōya no Mitsukuni.
In the image, the princess recites a spell written on a handscroll, summoning a giant skeleton. It rears out of a black void, crashing its way through the tattered palace blinds with its bony fingers to menace Mitsukuni and his companion.

Two layers of cotton.
Dimensions approx.: 14 x 28 cm.
