Actor Ichikawa Danjūrō VII as a yakko. Color print of a man in a fighting stance, in front of a tree with small leaves and red berries. The man is facing the right side of the image, and he is holding both of his arms outward. There is a sword tucked into his belt, and he is not wearing any shoes. He is wearing multi-colored clothing in shades of gray, green, and red. There is calligraphy in the left and right sides of the image. Poem by Ryūōtei Hananari
