This is the only print of Noh in this group of Kabuki woodblocks and is done in a "Sosaku-hanga" or creative print style identified by "drawing" straight onto the block with a chisel. Shakkyo means a stone bridge, and refers to the bridge to heaven guarded by Shishi, or mythological, lions. The mask, shishiguchi, is gilded while the wig is red and made of yaks' hair.
