1845 – 1855
Gift of J C Mathes and the Tokyo Center for Language & Culture (TCLC)
An entertainer, shown larger in scale than everyone and everything else in the image, sits in the center of the composition. Tied to the strings he holds in his hand are two monkeys and a goat. The monkeys sit atop poles, and are entertaining the people around. The women hold bell-like objects on strings. Are these meant to be placed on the goat's neck? A white square is shown below the entertainer--probably representing a mattress. The sun's rays are shown in organe on the horizon, outlining the semi-circular brown mound framing the scene taking place in the foreground. Vegetation and greenery are shown on the left and right.
