The kabuki actor is standing in a dancing posture, with one leg raised above the other, wearing an eboshi and holding two mallets next to his face, on which he wears a grotesque mask from a Kabuki play. The apron is carved in relief with a dragon, with inlaid eyes, whose expression is amusingly very much like that of the mask. Good patina and large himotoshi in the back.
