Sumori (Guarding the Nest), Supplement 2 - Handsome scene of Kakugawa Monzo with his daughter Namiko in a room overlooking a snowy courtyard. The pair represents the loyal samurai Kakogawa Honzo and his daughter Konami from the classic kabuki play "Kandehon Chushingura," based on the story of the 47 ronin. Dressed as a komuso or traveling monk, the samurai frowns angrily the young woman as she kneels behind him with a pleading expression. He wears a black monk's mantle over his blue kimono bordered with a brown floral print, a shakuhachi flute in one hand and his woven hat under his arm. Fine detail in the expressive faces and the setting, with soft shading in the wintry gray sky.
