VERY RARE - 1900 - Shunga - woodblock print X 6 - Vagina Fruit
Authentic Meiji period original and authentic (c.1900), Japanese shunga erotic art woodblock prints. It's a complete set of six different fruit woodblock print pictures/envelope pouches, all of which are analogies for the female vagina. The fruit shown in the very first photo, from top left to bottom right are as follows: 1) chestnut, 2) fig, 3) apple, 4) litchi, 5) peach, 6) pomegranate
All pictures here are actuallly miniature woodblock print envelopes. They come inside a larger ukiyo-e casing with a fruit basket on the cover. Larger shunga case measures 11.3 cm x 5.6 cm when closed up. The envelope pictures each measure 4 cm x 6.2 cm and are in very good condition. Very good colors and impressions. No backing. Please see and judge from photos.
This is a very odd and rare set of sexually connotative artwork from c.1900 Japan. Funny and - quite clever - fruit erotica. These would also fall under the shunga trick-picture-oddity theme. So seemingly innocent, yet explicitly sexual in nature, even their casing, which also has a comically suggestive cunnilingual title loosely translated as follows: "Please, feel free to eat whichever you like."
