The adult in this painting transports a small sculpted image of the fox deity Inari atop his head.
Though rarely mentioned in official histories, Socho was an accomplished painter whose talent is readily apparent to the modern eye. For his compositions he chose traditional Japanese stories or everyday events. This painting belongs to a triptych (set of three) that was recently converted from folding screen panels to hanging scrolls.
