Comic Print with Bird-headed Man - Amusing design from a comic Yoshifuji series featuring multiple small figures or scenes on one page, printed in blue violet only. This subject includes three figures who have objects instead of heads. One has a woodblock print, another has the ringed finial of a shakujou or Buddhist staff, and the third has a large duck or goose. Only the second time we've seen this this unusual design. Some areas have been hand colored.
