Oniwakamaru is a popular figure in Japanese folklore, known as a warrior-monk who lived during the 12th century. He is often depicted as a young boy, and in many stories, he is on a quest for revenge for the death of his mother. According to the legend, his mother was killed by a giant carp, and Oniwakamaru sets out to avenge her death.
In the print created by the artist Hokkei, Oniwakamaru is shown in the midst of his journey, with a determined expression and a weapon in hand, ready to take on the giant carp. The print is an example of the ukiyo-e style of art, which was popular in Japan during the Edo period. Hokkei is known for his skill in using gold and silver gilding to create a lavish effect on his prints. On the original print, Hokkei used this technique to create a sense of drama and movement, making the image stand out and bringing the story to life.
