I have for sale a vintage Japanese color woodblock print. The title of the piece is. The actors Sawamura Sojuro and Segawa Kikunogo by Toshusai Sharaku. It depicts two kabuki actors in a famous play performed in 18th century Edo period, Japan. This print is unique in that the shiny background color/texture is created using mica power.
