Subject:unknown writings on japanese print
Posted By: francis Wed, Oct 25, 2023 IP: 2a01:e0a:871:8270:dc

this unusual print shows stylicised kanji (?) around the lady in her bath.
Can you help me find their meaning and the period of this print?
Thanks a lot,

All I can say about this print is that it is a hanjimono (はんじもの) - picture puzzle/rebus.
The penultimate icon at the bottom left is "na" (菜) - greens, vegetables (I happen to know it from another rebus).
