Hiroshige was one of the most prolific artists in Japanese history. Since ancient times, the Japanese have considered kachō-ga (or kachō-e) an elegant expression of nature through art. The pieces also contain ancient symbolism. Here, the sparrow is auspicious for fertility and the wisteria for love and affection. The poem is:
Pendulous down from the eaves droop the
wisteria blossoms, showing the dyer within
tints that he fain would achieve.
