About this artwork
This image appears to relate to a scene described in the ninety-fourth poem in the One Hundred Poems by One Hundred Poets series by Privy Councilor Masatsune; it is not clear why the poem has been attributed to the much more famous Narihira:From Mount Yoshino
Blows a chill autumnal wind,
In the deepening night.
Cold the ancient hamlet is;
Sounds of beating cloth I hear.
