Authentic Edo period original, from the Kaei period (1848 - 1853), Japanese erotic art shunga woodblock print picture by Kunisada Utagawa (1786-1865).  From the shunga series, Shunshoku Tamazoroi (An Assortment of Pleasure in Spring).  Shunga picture measures 24.5 cm x 28.9 cm.  Very good colors and impressions.  Condition is fair with some wear, soiling, wormage, thin washi (Japanesse rice paper) backing.  Please see and judge from photos.

 

This is the first scene of three parts from the shunga series, Shunshoku Tamazoroi.  Here a male (actually a ghost spirit) inserts his hand inside a Japanese beauty's vagina outdoors at night, while he lifts and holds up her leg with his other hand.  A footbridge and toro (Japanese lantern) can also be seen in the background.
