Fukuroi: A Female Pilgrim, 1854 - Attractive scene of a woman making a pilgrimage, wearing a traditional white pilgrim's vest over her blue print kimono. She leans forward with a smile as she holds out a water dipper, a string of prayer slips around her neck. The young boy behind her enjoys a snack from a skewer as he waits. The inset above by Hiroshige offers an unusual perspective of Fukuroi, as seen from the level of the road with a horse and porter at right. Fields stretch out into the distance with a village nestled beneath the trees beyond. A charming design from this handsome collaborative series.
