In the lower right corner of the image, the head of a man with dark hair and a mustache is seen from the back. He sits in an armchair, gazing up at a raven perched on the helmeted head of a white classical bust. The bust is placed atop the frame of a simplified door. A mass of quickly-drawn black slashes surround the raven, stretch down diagonally from the door frame into the space of the seated man.<br />

This portrait of the poet Matsuo Bashō is constructed with seemingly effortless caligraphic lines, and surrounded by lines from one of the poet's works. The figure sits looking out at the viewer, beside his hat and a square container with a handle. The artist's seal is placed to the left of the figure, visually recalling the objects beside the poet on his other side.

In this monumental scroll, Nukina Kaioku has brushed a Chinese poem of his own composition, on the enduring theme of nature as refreshment for the spirit.  Note his masterful variation of thick and thin strokes, wet and dry ink, stately and rapid movement.<br />The verses may be tentatively rendered into English as follows:<br />   Mandarin ducks enjoy the fresh water; their graceful forms glow as they pass through channels in the reeds.<br />   Pushing beyond the thickets [to the open pond], they call to one another again and again in the dawn.<br />   A crimson mist breaks through gaps in the glade, its glow warming hidden nests.<br />   Waking up with nothing to do, [I came here] to playfully row among the spring waves.
