Snow, Moon and Flowers (Setsugekka), was a topic in art and design borrowed from old China, quite popular in the late Edo period. This threefold theme is held together in several ways. Most obviously it refers to the seasons of the year: snow = winter, moon = autumn and flowers = spring.
We know another print from this series of three: the one related to the flowers, kept at the Honolulu Museum of Art (Inventory Number: 24673).
