On this painting we see actors Sawamura Yodogoro II as Kawatsura Hogen and Bando Zenji as Oninosadobo in the kabuki play The Thousand Cherry Trees of Yoshitsune. What attracted me subconsciously to this view is similarity of characters depicted to the two of my friends who almost look the same when they are in a mood for mischief. This was something that I have realized later on.
