Comments - Charming image of a beauty reading a letter as she rides a giant carp in a parody of a the Daoist immortal Kinko Sennin. She seems absorbed in the message as the fish thrashes its tail, white foam splashing up from the undulating waves. Beautifully detailed. A rare subject to find in reprint.
