Depicting a Sennin, a rustic immortal of great age who lives in the wilderness, consuming only wild herbs and magical elixirs. He wears a mugwort cape, the mugwort having great medicinal properties, and carries a monkey, a capricious creature who has the power to subdue mischievous spirits and to aid humans in overcoming illness or poverty brought by witches and goblins. An auspicious and protective talisman. Himotoshi as two uneven holes at the back; stands on its own. Sgnature next to himotoshi: Tomoyuki.
