Comments - Charming scene of a farm woman returning home after a day's work. She carries a basket on her back topped with a sheaf of brushwood, holding onto the straps as she walks, a blue and white cloth wrapped about her head. A log bridge crosses a narrow stream framed by a maple tree in the foreground, and a softly glowing full moon begins to rise above the horizon. A torii gate is silhouetted at right with a small red shrine nestled beneath the tall pines at left. Lovely color and fine bokashi shading in this handsome shin-hanga print.
