57. Reading by the moon (Dokusho no tsuki)

In Confucian thought, filial piety is one of the virtues to be cultivated: the love and respect for one's parents and ancestors. This design shows Zi Luo (543-480 BC), a disciple of Confucius, who became a government official. He is studying by the light of the full moon, while carrying a sack of rice to his parents. (printed March 1888)
