Description: Tomiichiro Tokuriki (1902-2000) was born and spent his life in Kyoto, where he helped develop Kyoto's 'Sosaku Hanga'.

The print here shows Udo Shrine, a religious site associated with the legendary first emperor of Japan, Jimmu. Stories vary widely, but it is commonly said that Jimmu was nourished as an infant by breast-shaped rocks in the cave where the shrine is currently located.

This scene could have been from any era based on the main content, but Tokuriki has brought it into modern times by adding a modern ship on the horizon.
