Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a young monk or priest writing a poem slip, grinning as he looks over his shoulder, a brush in hand. A satchel hangs over his chest from a strap around his neck, with a black lacquer hat hanging over his back. Below, a laborer with a yoke over his shoulder looks up at his companion with an angry frown. He wears a boldly checked kimono over a black undergarment, a twisted dotted cloth tied around his forehead. The actors are Nakamura Fukusuke I and Iwai Kumesaburo III. Nice expressive figures.
