Description
 It has a flat rectangular shape and is made of wood to be divided into five stages. A string was passed to both sides of each step, fastened with netting to prevent fall. Furthermore, the string was sandwiched between bands.

 The small ship is parked at the wharf. This ship, plants, and even crowds in the sky  are depicted with gold. The contrast between black and gold colors makes an elegant look for this work.
