Isn't there another story which would better describe #913 Kinko Sennin. I seem to recall one of a boy riding a carp ;or am I confusing it with the boy disappearing on the turtle for 900 years (or is that yet a third story)?

I like this piece whatever its depiction.

I recall Kintaro fighting the giant carp, and this naked and puffy/muscular child certainly shouldn't be Kinko sennin :lol:
The coloring of the body may also suggest that this is the super-kid rather than the fish-painter.

Hi Dave,

We will assist purchasers in applications for export and should these be denied, will cancel the sale and return the purchaser payments.

Thank you for your interest,
