The kanji 夢 depicting the dream is composed of four ideograms: the first 艹 represents the grass, the second 罒 an oblique look, the third 冖 is a blanket and, at last, the fourth 夕 is a crescent moon evening. As a result, it is easy to imagine a person with half-closed eyes dozing on the lawn and sheltering, with a blanket, from the cool of a moonlit evening.

Others read, in the composition of the four kanji mentioned above, the act of waking up with flower petals on the eyes after having had a beautiful dream, a nice crowning of a pleasant evening.

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.
