A samurai right, watches as the vision of the daughter of the Dragon King issues from the half-open shell of a clam. A beautiful woman emerges from a giant clam as an admirer looks on in this witty monochrome print by Okumura Masanobu. Masanobu?s contemporaries may have been able to guess her identity from the visual pun but modern viewers must rely on the inscription to the upper right of the man: she is the courtesan Inaba of the Hamaguri (?clam?) Brothel in the Yoshiwara, the licensed prostitution district in Edo. Artist's seal: Masanobu.); Japanese, out of copyright
