This print is full of humor and energy. Below the dark night sky, three roosters are craning their necks and marching forward, with the leader marching out of the picture. On the ground, dirt can be seen trodden everywhere, due to the movement of the roosters. There is a faint line in the middle representing the horizon in the dark, and a spiral galaxy is visible in the sky. The dark background and the red and yellow roosters, which make a strong color contrast, give a strong visual impact. Meanwhile, the bold and humorous printmaking technique creates a vivid and dramatic atmosphere.
