Not on view

The foreground's steep mountain path, sharply delineated and occupied with figures, contrasts with the much lighter gray image of an inlet with boats, a village, and Mount Fuji in the distance.

The image of a dragon ascending with clouds surrounding Fuji was considered an omen of worldly success.
