After my unsuccessful first attempt I want to post the image of two pages of a book a second time. Perhaps the first thread should be deleted. The left page shows a wave, a carp and Kintaro (Golden Boy) wrestling wild animals. The right page appears to depict Shoki scaring away a small demon and two small suggestions to depict Shoki the Demon Queller.

An online poster-shop sells repros of the left page as works of Kitao Masayoshi or the Shigemasa-School. Apparently they got there information from somewhere. I couldn't find the source, though.

In the first thread it was supposed that the pages could stem from one of Hokusai's sketch books...any help is greatly appreciated!
