Description: An Utamaro print depicting two quails (uzura) and one skylark (hibari), originally from the album Momo chidori kyôka awase (Myriad Birds: A Kyoka Competition). The kyoka (light verse) poems that appeared in the original print do not appear in this version. Soft bokashi gradation has been used in background of the print.


This particular edition was produced by the O-Edo Mokuhan-sha, probably in the 1950-60s period. There are a few foxing spots from its long storage in their packaging, from which it has now been (thankfully) released!
