Since the print shows a tug-of-war between members of the Taira and Minamoto clans (resp. left and right) during the Genpei war, which was a civil war, one should perhaps understand it as ridiculising the two factions in the Boshin war in a covert way (because of the Tokugawa ban on depicting contemporary events).
