From the series Bravery Matched with the Twelve (Zodiac) Signs:
(Buyū mitate jūnishi - 武勇見立十二支)
Dog (戌) and Hata Rokurozaemon (畑 六郎左衛門)

Identifier: 2017 Kitamura 2

The original print designed by Kuniyoshi was published in ca. 1840.

The zodiac sign of the dog is represented as a companion to a vassal of the warrior Nitta Yoshida (1301-1338). Above the cloud in the distance are the flags and standards of an army, whose presence signals an impending battle.

This example was carved and printed ca 2017 by master carver, Kitamura Shoichi. The fine printing combines graded color in a dynamic, swirling composition of exceptional artistry.
