Description: The original print is considered a surimono, a genre of Japanese woodblock print. Surimono prints were privately published and used for special occasions, unlike more famous ukiyo-e prints. They often contained images and poetry, so it was probably accompanied by another sheet with some texts printed on it.

This particular print depicts a woman working at a loom under a pine tree, assisted by two other women. The woman operating the warps only exposes a small part of her white forehead, giving the impression of her face appearing through a curtain of threads.

This is a post-war reproduction, from the Adachi company.

There is a small spot at the upper left part of this print.
