Description

A dancer is performing the lion dance in the noh play "Shakkyo". O-e Hiromoto (1148-1225), one of the legendary warriors in Japan, was converted to Buddhism and became a priest. He went to China (as a priest,the Monk Jakushō) to practice the austerities. One day he is about to cross a stone bridge across a ravine when a child appears. He hears from the child that the land on the other side of the bridge is the Paradise of the deity Monju Bosatsu. After a while, a lion emerges and gambols and dances among the peony flowers - the king of beast enjoying the most majestic of flowers.

This scene was dramatized in the Noh play "Shakkyo" (Stone Bridge).

Excellent usage of gold metallic printing and embossing.
