Komachi of the Sekidera Temple

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Here a woman, as a mitate of Sekidera-komachi, is standing and dressing her hair in front of a mirror, suggesting the passing years. She wears a thin casual kimono indicative of summer. Behind, in a cartouche, the now old Komachi who lives near the Sekidera (temple) is crossing a bridge holding an umbrella and a walking stick.
