Commentary
The spirit of Ki no Aritsune’s daughter approaches the izutsu / wellhead where, as a child, she and a young boy would meet and measure their heights. Later when they were adults, they married, but the husband, traditionally said to be Ariwara no Narihira (825-880), became enamored of another woman. In the play, the ghost dressd in her husband clothes goes to the well to see “his reflection.” The inset at the upper left quotes a line from the play and shows attendants putting a court headdress on the actor.
