Harvesting Taro Roots, 1897 - Handsome image of beauties harvesting taro roots. At left, one woman has tumbled backwards to the ground, still clutching the stem of a large plant. Her companions watch with amusement, the beauty in the center hiding a giggle behind her hand while the young girl at right points at the scene. The women are elegantly dressed in colorful kimono as they stroll about the tall taro plants. A striking design, attractively colored and detailed, with burnishing on the hair and embossing on the white kimono collar and trim. Only the second time we've offered this rare Chikanobu design.
