Commentary
The father of Tamiya Botaro was murdered by a jealous fencing master in 1624. Nurse Otsuji takes care of him as a boy. She is hauling water from a well. It looks like a Jugendstil image by the abundant Lotus flowers. Botaro became an excellent swordsman. He would revenge his father, when he was seventeen.
