These prints are lovely. Does anybody know why some of them are painted inside an annulus sector? Are they supposed to be inside some other structure, or do they work standalone?

To fit on a fan, I think.

And the round ones?

Maybe round paper fans?

I learned about Ōmi-hakkei from one of Lafcadio Hearn's magnificent folklore tales [1].
