Description: Awabi (abalone) divers are on the rocks, with one customer on the right and an infant suckling. It is said to depict ama (women divers) of Enoshima. The usage of the reddish color for the outlines of the women's bodies, rather than black ink gives a healthy and vibrant impression to these prints.

Originally made around 1797 and published in the mid-1970s as a reproduction by Takamizawa Company.

The displayed dimension is each print size.


There are a few small tears at the bottom of each sheet and traces of removal of glue on the backsides.

Also, on the middle sheet, there are a few small marks on the woman's face and around her, on the left sheet, there are a few small marks on the upper left.
