Description Shiba Onko smashes a hole in a large jar of water to save his friend from drowning. This quick-thinking boy became a great statesman in China in the Sung dynasty (960-1279). This series of forty half-size prints is made up of subjects from Chinese and Japanese lore. Yoshitoshi drew them in an apparently carefree way, signing each illustration "Yoshitoshi giga"-Yoshitoshi drew for fun.
