E-awase (The Picture Contest), Chapter 17 - Attractive scene of Princess Yaegaki resting her chin in her hands as she looks lovingly up at a picture of her deceased sweetheart, the warrior Katsuyori. She leans her elbows on a low lacquer table, a scroll of prayers tumbling off onto the floor next to a string of prayer beads. A wisp of smoke rises from an incense burner set on a stand before the portrait of her beloved. A charming image with lovely detail in the expressive face and elegant clothing.
