  • About

    A casually dressed lady, probably a courtesan, lies languidly on the tatami mat of her room and gazes at shadows of pine branches on the veranda. The full moon mentioned in the title haiku by Tarakai Kikaku (1661–707) is not depicted here, its presence instead suggested by the round shape of the fan as well as the shadows of the branches.
