“A nice okubi-e scene of a couple standing outside in the moonlight. A Japanese cuckoo (hototogisu) flying in front of the crescent moon.”

In Japan, it is believed that the cuckoo calls spirits to the next world. It symbolizes the transience of life as well as loneliness and melancholy.

Antique Japanese color woodblock. Shunga (Erotic print).
