Object Description
Lady Ashiya’s husband has been tarrying in the capital for three years. When he finally sends word that he will be returning, she is elated, but she soon receives another message. This time, she is told that his return will be delayed. Eventually she is driven to death by sadness and longing. In this print, Lady Ashiya beats a cloth on a kinuta to pass away the time, thrashing away her loneliness and resentment.
