Kozuka with a Man Carrying a Reed Mat


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description At the right side of the kozuka, a man holds a reed mat over his head while he runs. There is a string of beads on the ground to the left. On the reverse, three figures, possibly dancers, also run away while carrying mats. This may be an allusion to a folk story.
