Meiji period Japanese color woodblock print with an image of a man brutally killing a caught boar, surrounded by other hunters. Yuryaku , the 21st Emperor of Japan, (reigned A.D. 456-479), was known as a mighty hunter, having great physical strength. Here he kills a giant boar during a hunting party at Mt. Katsuragi in A.D. 461. Yoshitoshi made the print look like an ancient scroll. His style in these prints is considered an updated Yamato-e style of painting.
