1500: Year of the Rat (Seikaku)

A family of white rats play on the luck mallet, an icon from Japanese mythology which gives out money if shaken and can bring wishes true. The other elements - Mount Fuji, the cranes, pine bamboo and plum - complete this auspicious scene.

No biographical details, but the artist Mori Seikaku specialises in animal and flower scroll paintings. He signs his work the traditional way, with the characters for his given (brush) name, Seikaku (lit. 'nest of the crane') and a seal of the same.

* This puzzle has smaller pieces than the standard size.
