December: Snow Viewing - Lovely scene of beauties enjoying the snow on a winter day. At left, a woman strolls along the stepping stones of the snow-covered garden, looking down as a dog runs up. In the center, two young boys build a snow Daruma and a snow deer complete with antlers, while a beauty and a girl watch from the doorway of the house at right. An attractive design, with burnishing on the black lacquer trim of the sliding panels and the hair of the girl at upper right.
