“This compelling surrealistic fantasy scene by Kyosai depicts imperial officers in European dress having sex with woman, all but one clad in kimono.”
The background is also very curious: there are four standing soldiers, a strange god-like vulva or vulva-like statue, three foreigners with erect penises conversing and to the left, a foreign woman smoking a pipe .”
