Details & Prices: More information...
The woman in the roundel is a geisha who was the poet, Naonari's friend, since the emblem shaped like a sailing boat, both on her fan and on the poem slip to the right, is a fanciful form of the character nao, the first half of the poet's name. The poem describes a peacock. 'Tori mo kite asobu hikage no nagaki o ni kogane iro masu tama no hatsuharu' The bird comes to play and the jewelled early Spring makes the long tails of the sunbeams more golden.
