Museum für angewandte Kunst, Vienna - left-hand panel of this triptych with the publisher's seal This is the center panel of a triptych by Kuniyoshi. One can tell, from this image alone, what a successful outing these women and children have had. The woman who is standing up is holding a large lobster, an ebi, in her right hand. The basket she is holding with her left hand has fish in it. The woman who is stooping down is looking back at the other woman and offering her a shell, possibly an oyster.
