This is the earliest surviving example of the "horse stable" theme in Japanese screens.
This pair of screens combines images of prized horses in their stalls with vignettes of games and sport. One of the screens has a special focus on falconry, while the other depicts people playing the board games go and shōgi. Dogs and monkeys, one of which has caught the eye of a finely attired youth, heighten the appeal of the scene.
