Important original woodblock print by the artist Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (月岡芳年) depicting the young princess Otomo Wakana (大友若菜姫) who, using a magic scroll, evokes a giant spider tsuchigumo (土蜘蛛) that will help her to take her revenge on the Kikuchi clan (菊池家), responsible for her father's death in the context of a feud.

The work, taken from the series "Sagas of Beauty and Bravery" (美勇水滸伝), was made in 1866 by the publisher Omiya Kyujiro (近江屋久次郎), owner of Kiyudo (亀遊堂), and by the engraver Matsushima Masakichi (松島彫政).

The print on Japanese washi paper (和紙) despite the right signs of the time is in good general condition.
