Japan, lacquer dish, Princess Kamigashi and the giant spider, Edo period

Japan, lacquer dish, Princess Kamigashi and the giant spider, Edo period, early 19th C.
This large lacquered dish represents Princess Kamigashi killing the giant spider.
The scene is inspired by a print by Tsukioka Settei (1710-87) which he produced in 1757.
Princess Kamigashi (Kamigashihime) is said to have lived during the time of Emperor Keik? (71-130). It is said that this woman of remarkable courage was attacked by 7 brigands. Popular legend seized on this victory, turning robbers into giant spiders.
The scene is made in Hira and Taka maki-e lacquer on a bright red background. The eyes of the spider are covered with a thin layer of glass.
The back is in black ro-iro lacquer in the center and red on the edge.
Signature Tamayama at the back.
Diameter 47 cm, Height 8 cm.
