Artist: Utagawa Kuniyoshi
Title: Yamamoto Kansuke Nyûdô tasting blood
Series: Six Selected Heroes (Eiyû Rokkasen)
Yamamoto Kansuke Nyûdô holds a decapitated head in one hand, a body sprawled beneath him. Closer inspection reveals that he seems to be tasting the dripping blood of his vanquished enemy, blue tongue covered. Mortally wounded, he is impervious as a bullet whizzes by, focused only on vengeance and consumed by bloodlust.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
