Dancing Beauties - Charming scene of three beauties dancing outside a teahouse or restaurant, striking graceful poses with their hands in the air. They wear matching green kimono with the sleeves pushed down to the waist over delicately patterned red kimono trimmed with dotted borders, their hair pulled back into topknots, a man's hairstyle. Paper lantern's decorated with cherry blossoms hang at upper left. An attractive design detailed with fine line work.

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.
