Further Info:
From the Hundred Views of Edo series No:21. The unusual location of the title in one cartouche with the signature means that it can be read as `Painted by Hiroshige, the messenger of Bishamon on the 3rd day of the First Month`. This has led some scholars to believe that the figure carrying the huge rice-paddle and pestle up the steps of the Atago-jinja shrine for the upcoming Bishamon-matsuri Festival is actually a self-portrait of Hiroshige. Good impression and colours, horizontal centre-fold, worm-holes well repaired in the planking lower-right.
