In the ideogram depicting the enjoyment (楽) some like to see a pictogram representing a little white bird (白) flapping its wings (羽) on the top of a tree (木) as a sign of joy. Others, instead, believe that this kanji derives from the ancient 樂, or a wooden (木) drum (白) mounted on two stands (幺) and ready to be played on a festive occasion.

Whatever is the correct origin, to date this kanji is used to signify both joy in itself (楽しみ), and the pleasure inherent in the concatenation of harmonic sounds, that is in music (音楽).

The work, made on a thick shikishi (色紙) cardboard with golden edges by the female calligrapher Keisen (恵泉), is in very good condition.
