This vintage Ukiyo-e Japanese print depicts a typical Japanese scene where a man's head is blissfully resting on the lap of a woman who takes a long pointy tool, mimikaki, and removes the excess earwax out.

Ear cleaning, or mimi souji, is associated with the pleasant feeling of maternal closeness.
