This print is from the Hokusai Manga (sketches) series published in 15 volumes. The first volume of the series was intended as a drawing instruction manual but Hokusai almost immediately removed the text and republished the drawings alone. The series took Hokusai on an encyclopaedic venture, from seemingly insignificant depictions of everyday objects to spirits and historical figures.
The design shows Barekisonjin, a horse-riding warrior god travelling on a horse through the clouds. One pair of hands holdings two words are raised above his head, the other pair holding a monkey and a bird.
