Target Shooting Game, 1867 - Intriguing scene of a man taking part in a target shooting game using what appear to be blow darts. The man holds a bamboo pipe, and containers on either side of him hold the darts. Targets hang in front of a blue cloth in front of him, with scene above featuring a range of curious images. Near top right, a boy has a turtle body, while just to the left, a man with a coin for a head strikes a gong. Other subjects includes a wild boar, a dog, and a falcon on a perch. A fascinating design, nicely detailed.
