Description

“Magnificent depiction of a lascivious woman engaged with four men.”

Most strikingly in this illustration is the conspicuous display of sexual paraphernalia in the background.

The printing of this shunga is of an extremely high quality with excellent use of metallic pigments and gaufrage.
