Memorial Anniversary (Shunen) - Fascinating image depicting obsessive jealousy as a snake returning from the grave, the serpent coiling around a Buddhist memorial tablet, which is traditionally placed on a home altar. The snake slithers over a black lacquer container topped with papers and food and a bowl of water presented as offerings. Beautiful detail in the snake's scales.
