This is a twin scrolls set.
There is a small hole on one scroll.
There are some stains on the drawing parts.
Not a few worm-eaten holes on the drawing parts have been repaired with paper, and those are not so noticeable.
As a whole, the condition of this scroll set is so-so.
Although, a Kanji poem is written in good form using Japanese brush and black ink.
The poem describes a visual scene that Tokugawa Mitsukuni (1628-1701), great ruler in the Edo period, seated in Zen meditation.
