Description

Harunobu designed a number of charming scenes of daily life, especially children at play. Here a board game of sugoroku has been interrupted by a fight between its main players. The young boys wrestling wear richly patterned robes, suggesting that they are from wealthy households and perhaps indicating a special occasion, such as a New Year's celebration.
