Description: This print is from the series “Thoughts Reflected in a Mirror”.

Interesting interior scene with a beauty making a paper string in order to clean the pipe that is lying on her knees. The diagonal lines in the composition (the pipe, the paper string, her hairpin ...) and the hands in movement give a lot of dynamism to the whole design even though she is sitting down.

This particular print is a post-war reproduction by Yuyudo.
