Description: 北野天満宮にて御利益を願い石板の台座に置かれた牛の青銅像に触れる老婆を撮影する。牛像は氏子により同社に寄進されたもの。手拭いをかぶった老婆は右手で杖をつき、左手で牛の右後ろ足を触っている。背後に早咲きの北野の梅林が広がる。牛は北野天満宮の祭神、菅原道真の使とされていた。1904年イギリス人写真家H・G・ポンティングの撮影か。 / An elderly woman prays for good luck by touching the bronze cow on a stone pedestal at Kitano Tenmangu Shrine. The statue was donated by shrine followers. The woman is wearing a hand towel on her head, holding a cane in her right hand, and touching the hind leg of the cow with her left hand. Early blooming plum trees are visible in the background. The shrine's guardian deity, the cow was regarded as a messenger of Sugawara-no-Michizane. This may have been taken by the British photographer H. G. Ponting in 1904.
