Mt. Zozusan and Konpira Panorama /象頭山金毘羅全図(Zozusan Konpira zenzu)

Ichi-no-saka Seiko Dozo Publishing ※Replica
Artist: Hanzan Matsukawa (松川半山)
Matsukawa was the foremost ukiyo-e woodblock print artist of the Early Meiji Period, and a painter from the Late Edo Period into the Meiji Period.

This is the landscape of Konpirasan as seen in the Late Edo Period.
The Konpira Ooshibai Theater (now Kanamaru-za Theater) had been built, and the Kondo Main Hall (now Asahi-no-yashiro Shrine) was already completed, but the kairo semi-enclosed corridor in front of the Kondo is not portrayed, and it can be thought that this piece was painted sometime between 1848 and 1860.

象頭山(Mt. Zozusan)
It is said that this mountain is named "Zozu" (elephant's head in Japanese), as its shape resembles such.

金丸座(Kanamaru-za Theater)
Kabuki is performed every spring.

作者 松川半山(まつかわはんざん)
江戸後期から明治時代の画家で、明治初期の浮世絵界の第一人者。

江戸後期のこんぴらさんの風景。
芝居小屋(金丸座・かなまるざ)もでき、金堂(旭社・あさひのやしろ )も完成しているが、金堂前の廻廊がないので、嘉永から安政にかけてのものであろうといわれている。

象頭山(ぞうずさん)
象の頭の形を思わせることから名付けられたといわれている。
