On the tree stump lay a candlestick and an axe. The black teeth (ohaguro) indicates that she is a noblewoman. The moon. the blown out candles, and the green glowing bushes in the background give this scene a mysterious tension.
The magnificent printing techniques such as the various gaufrage patterns, gold and silver pigments used in this series are virtually unmatched in shunga."
This is considered the masterpiece of the series and has been copied countless times after its release!
