KUNIOYOSHI (1797 - 1861): "Okute: The Hag of the Lonely House," from the series "Sixty-nine Post Stations of the Kisokaido Road, 1852-1853." Fuji Arts indicates the hag (see also the Yoshitoshi image on this page) killed unborn babies to get the blood for her master. (Makes Grimm's Fairy Tales seem like "Fractured Fairy Tales" on "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.")
