Sumo Art

The Boston Museum of Fine Arts is having an exhibition called Sumo: Japan's Big Sport, described as featuring

not only portraits of famous wrestlers and scenes of their greatest bouts, but also views of wrestlers as celebrities in everyday life, legends and Kabuki plays featuring wrestlers as heroes, and fantasies in which animals or supernatural beings enjoy wrestling just as humans do.

There is an online tour here. The tour contains photos, information about the art, historical information and an option to send pictures as e-cards or to print them on your own printer. Here is the 2nd picture on the tour:
