About the object

A young woman is teaching a boy to play the drums. The print is titled Seven Pieces of Luck and refers to the Seven Gods of Luck and Good Fortune, a group of immortal beings. Utamaro has skilfully linked the title and picture by immortalising the Seven Gods as an embroidered motif on the boy's kimono.
