“A very unusual abortion scene with a young pregnant woman at the point of giving birth (the tiny forehead already coming out) holding on tightly to an occasional table while being supported by an old woman.”
Erotic signifiers enhance the scene for example in the visibility of the aged woman's genitalia adding a lesbian undertone and the stream depicted on the folding screen in the background which evokes woman's sexuality.
From a book series by Kuniyoshi depicting an erotic parody on the Chushingura story.
