Image from the eleven-print series Improvised Shadow Performances, in which Hiroshige depicted figures making shadows on shōji screens by contorting their bodies. The images demonstrate how to create ingenious shadows and could easily have been used as a how-to guide for clever shadow making. (Source: The Minneapolis Institute of Art)
