Comments - Interesting depiction of beauties engaged in sericulture, the raising of silkworms. At lower right, a beauty chops mulberry leaves to feed the silkworms, while the woman at lower left plucks cocoons from branches. In the center, women stretch silk to creates bundles of silk floss, which hang from a stand at upper left. A few silk moths flutter in the sky at upper right. A nicely detailed image.
