Notes: Elaborate gofun (white) overprinting on the vivid yellow head covering on the lower figure. Lip colors are mixed with a very fine coral powder to give an almost illuminated quality. Miles notes that, "this was the favorite multiple figure (print) with most critics".

The South Seas prints were all created from sketches and paintings done between 1929 and 1936. As late as 1959, these early works were being carved to produce new prints. Since many were lost because of World War II bombing of Tokyo, several of them are among the rarest and most desirable of all the artist's oeuvre. - Miles, pg. 128
