“Afuganisutan no kyaraban”. Daytime view of a camel caravan, with one small donkey besides. This work has at least three different blocks than the nighttime version, as we can see landscape in the distance that would disappear from view come evening.

Extremely fresh and clean, and cannot be compared with examples that have been passed around for decades and/or framed.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition. Mint.

Literature: Abe catalog number 175.
Seal: Jizuri (“self-printed”) in ink
