It is a kind of komochi-e or trick print. Each of the faces is of an actor that has played that role in the kabuki play. I own one by Chikashige, which has five actors for each of the two roles.

For this print, the Tokyo Metro Library terms the genre hanging print: Shikake-e (mekuri) -- 仕掛絵(めくり)

The multiple faces can be seen at:
