Comments - Intriguing kabuki scene of a beauty and two boys holding up a giant creature woven from reeds with red cloth eyes, mouth, and a bow atop its head. The woman grins happily as she looks over her shoulder at a frightened man who clasps his prayer beads in his hands as he looks up at the strange object, which is perhaps supposed to be a snake or worm. The boys wear matching plaid kimono and straw aprons. Along the opposite shore of the river, lengths of cloth are hung out to dry on wooden racks. A fascinating subject, wonderfully detailed.
