Utagawa Kunisada, Spirit of the Cat Rock at Okazaki, 1835 (detail)

This fantastical image is taken from Utagawa Kunisada's woodblock series Fifty-three Stations of the Tôkaidô Highway. Inspired by Utagawa Hiroshige's series of the same name from just a few years earlier, Kunisada's prints depict costumed actors at different views along the road leading from Edo to Toyko. The Spirit of the Cat Rock triptych refers to the legend of a giant cat-spirit that haunted the road at Okazaki. From the Japanese art collection of The Fitzwilliam Museum.
