Yoshitoshi captures the moment where the priest turns back into a fox. He still stands on his two feet, and his hand are that of a human, but he has already grown a fox's tail - marked by the abnormal bulge on his back - and his head has changed into that of a fox. The picture is mostly monochrome, but the intricate design of the snarled leaves and the engraving on the priest's headdress make this an intriguing work to observe.
