Making Chinese Soldiers Shiver (Shinbei no hiyakasare 清兵の冷やかされ ) from the series 'Hurrah for Japan! One Hundred Victories, One Hundred Laughs' Nihon banzai hyakusen hyashushō (日本万歳 百撰百笑)

Identifier: 1894-95 Kiyochika making chinese soldiers shiver

The title of this design utilizes a play on the meanings of hiyakasu, “to chill” or “to laugh at.” The series title, literally “One Hundred Selections, One Hundred Laughs,” is a pun on the expression “One Hundred Battles, One Hundred Victories” (both pronounced “Hyakusen hyakushô”).
