Impression Very Fine. Nicely executed "bokashi" shading to purple kimono, upper sky, and "poem cloud"; crisp "key-lines," highly detailed carving of individual (genital) hair-lines.
Condition Very Good. Strong colors. (Light toning, light wear, minor marks and soils.)
Reference/Illus na
Comments Under a kanji-written "poem cloud," we view a detailed look of the genitals of this couple locked in a love-making embrace. (Quite clean for "shunga.")
