Who is this Yokozuna ?

Based on the clothing style, it may have been in the late 19th century. I vote for Y15 Umegatani Totaro from the late 1880's, but it is just a shot in the dark.

Thanks for your answer ;-)

I think it is much more likely to be the 17th Yokozuna Konishiki Yasokichi
See DB for details
See this site for a picture which is very similar to yours (scroll down to the bottom right of the page)

heheh, assuming the french website linked above has its sources matched up, you can see a similar distortion in the woodblock of Umegatani. Seems there was artistic license in play there (In a state of confusion...)

    Sumo is a very good thing. Though better with affordable video.

Picture taken Sep 4, 1975: dejected Oshiogawa-oyakata (former Daikirin) and wife at the grave of his shisho Nishonoseki (former Saganohana), about half a year after his death and shortly after Daikirin was ousted in a succession dispute by the shisho's widow and his stablemate Kongo. (Longer form of the story here.)

Since it is titled stereoview, I have to assume it is a Stereogram, which is made of two pictures taken simultaneously or nearly so in order to mimic the angle of the perception of your two eyes individually so that a 3D composite can be seen by unfocusing your eyes to view each side independently. This was often done with a blinder dividing the two images in an apparatus called a stereoscope. We used to have an ancient one from my Greatgrandfather and I played with stereograms when I was little. And then of course I got a Disney Viewfinder for Christmas! I believe it operates on very much the same principle, but maybe is a bit more like 3D glasses?

But I digress. Since you may have known all of that already, we are looking at a .gif image, which we normally think of as static but it is pretty easy to create an animated gif using simple photoshopping or I assume a wide range of other graphics applications. This animation has only 2 frames...

Ok, must have been an exhibition match then. That oicho-mage fooled me.

It's the comedy sumo Kainowaka and Kongofuji performed a while ago.
