Description: Two swallows prepare to land on a branch of a peach blossom tree in this ō-tanzaku by Hiroshige. The flowers are just about to bloom, and the illustration perfectly conveys the promising feeling of the start of spring. The poem reads: "Spring has come and/peach blossoms float in all the streams/how impossible to determine where utopia is" (translation by the RISD Museum). Beautiful kara-zuri blind-embossing has been used to signify the texture of feathers on the bodies of the swallows.
