Description The mysterious solemnity of Okina's dance (Walters 95.236), here performed by two actors, is contrasted by the vigorously comical dance of Sambaso. Kogyo has depicted Sambaso against a vivid orange background to reflect the energy of his dance. He wears a mask almost identical to Okina's except it is black in color.
Provenance Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Snell, Jr., Maryland Line [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1989, by gift.
