Winter, 1861 - Charming scene of Prince Genji relaxing on a winter day, his feet tucked beneath a kotatsu, a wooden frame over a brazier covered with a quilt to keep in the warmth. He grins as a young girl presents a snow rabbit on a tray to him, the ears made of leaves. At left, two younger children dressed in matching kimono carry a large chunk of ice or snow tied to a bamboo pole. The beauty behind them wears a yellow robe patterned with irises, blowing on her fingers to warm them. At top center, the pink buds of a plum tree peek through a layer of snow, the tree framing a view of a garden pond. An attractive design.
