Sennin Chokaro from the series 'Sixteen Charming Figures of Female Hermits and Devotees' (Enshi juroku josen)
A woman in a black and blue striped kimono pours sake into a bottle. Behind her a fan decorated with a horse design rests against a candle stand. The inset depicts Sennin Chokaro, one of eight Taoist Immortals, who was believed to have carried a magic horse in a gourd. When Chokaro needed to travel he would release this horse from the gourd and command it to run for days on end. This smaller image is framed with auspicious lingzhi fungus.
