I've been searching for a print (ukiyo-e) of Kintaro, the Japanese boy of legend. I've seen many Utamaro prints of Kintaro as a young boy with his mother, Yama-uba. They are nice, but what I want is a print of him pracicing Sumo with Momotaro or with woodland animals. I especially like one I've seen of Kintaro on the back of a bear. After several shopping trips to Japan, and watching the auction sites, I fear this is turning into a life-long quest. Any ideas for where I can find an original or reproduction of Kintaro practicing Sumo?
Thank you for your help.
