The print depicts a vampiric tale of an old lady who roamed around the countryside obtaining the blood of children in order to cure her lord’s strange disease. Not only was the story of great interest to Yoshitoshi and his teacher, Kuniyoshi Utagawa, but it was also used as material for many plays in both Noh and Kabuki theatre. In this scene, Yoshitoshi has the old lady peering round the doorway, menacingly searching out her victim. It is understood that in her right hand is the knife she uses to carry out her murders. Through this series, Yoshitoshi explores the range of tones and emotions heightened by moonlight, paying particular attention to fear and horror in this scene.
