Authentic Edo period original, c.1830, Japanese shunga erotic art woodblock print picture by Kuniyoshi Utagawa (1797-1861).  From the haunted & sexually macabre demon/ghost shunga series, Kaidan hyakki yagyo (Ghost Stories: Night Procession of the Hundred Demons).  Shunga picture measures approximately 13.1 cm x 9.6 cm (koban size).  Great colors and impressions!  Condition is very good with some light wear; barely visible partial hanko stamps showing near top right edge and bottom left edge.  One tiny 1 cm long tear at top left of picture (shown in second photo below).  No backing.  In short, another stunning piece from this rare and highly-sought-after shunga series!

 

One of the better shunga scenes as a winged vulva-faced demonic spirit carries its phallus-shaped baby during an eerie stormy night, while a wanderer cowers away in terror.  Classic erotic-art terror by one of Japan's finest and most recognized ukiyo-e artists ever, Kuniyoshi Utagawa!
