A monk presides over the marriage in a shrine to the goddess of virginity while musicians play on gongs and koto harp, and the bride's childish ornaments are burnt on a pyre. Handcoloured illustration and copperplate engraving by Andrea Bernieri from Giulio Ferrrario's Costumes Antique and Modern of All Peoples (Il Costume Antico e Moderno di Tutti i Popoli), Florence, 1842.
