No. 10, Tanzi: He Fed His Parent's Doe's Milk, 1890 - Amusing image of a beauty discovering her small boy playing under a fur robe, He has knocked a book and several brushes off a low table next to him, but she doesn't seem to mind. The illustration above shows the boy Tanzi (Enshi in Japanese), whose parents were elderly and had eye problems. The doctor suggested doe's milk to treat them, so Tanzi dressed in a deerskin so he could move among the herd and get milk for them.
