Representations of Hell - Charming comic scene from a series of ten prints by Sakai Baisai representing Hell. His vision of Hell seems like more like scenes from daily life, only with demons in place of humans. Various demons are shown fishing, playing games, picnicking, and taking part in everyday activities. The first time we've seen this amusing series.
