There are few small spots.
So, the condition of this scroll is very good.
One Kanji character that means "waterfall" is written very powerfully.
One strong line is extended to the bottom to imitate a waterfall.
It must be humorous expression of Zen spirit.
The drawer is the chief priest of the Hotoku-Ji Temple in Nara Prefecture.
