Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauties Catching Fireflies
Comments - Charming scene of beauties catching fireflies in the early evening. The woman kneeling at left uses a fan to swat at the insects while her companion stands ready with a small cage. Autumn flowers and grasses fill a garden bed with a few small trees. A small teahouse can be seen in the distance atop a hill overlooking a pond. Nicely detailed with embossing on the white kimono collars.
