The story of pirate captain Kezori Kuemon is filled with crime and drama that must have been particularly entertaining to an Edo period audience. When national borders were almost entirely sealed, the roughish nature of the pirate must have been particularly potent. In the bottom left of the image is an elaborate, well-defined compass, an unusual instrument to be seen in woodblock prints, adding to the exotic nature of the character. As well as adding fierceness to this outlaw character, the dragon adorning his robe further echoes the nautical theme of the print, as the mystical creature often resides in the ocean in Japanese folklore.
