Friends: I'm hoping you can help me identify some Kunisada prints of men fighting with mallets. The men are wearing capes or scarves with a device that looks to be a necklace of cascading stars. I already have a triptych and have recently seen two more prints with the same iconography but don't fit with my triptych, so that when the series would be laid out, it would likely be enormous. By the way, despite the ferocity of the action and the grimaces on the men, no one is actually depicted as getting conked. I checked Izzard's "Kunisada's World" and came up blank. All help will be gratefully acknowledged. Thanks!
