Edo period, 18-19th century / approx. 45 x 84cm (17.71 x 33.07in)

Scene of the inside of Buddhist temple. (confirmed some samurais talking with monks as well)
Fragmentary leaves of paper scroll (‘dankan') as a painting example (‘funpon', - collected and used by later artists for reference or study).
Rare handpainted dankan with instructive notes in parts and unique “number-faces” instead of eyes, nose and mouse.
In damaged antique condition as is, but aesthetic enough with some accentual blanks (abstraction) of backing paper as seen.
