  • Thumbnail for Man Kissing a Geisha
    Man Kissing a Geisha by Anonymous

    This print's format and subject suggests that it belonged to a set of shunga ("spring pictures" or erotic prints). The woman, identified as a female entertainer or "geisha" by her musical instrument), falls prey to the seductions of the man, who slides his hand inside her kimono. The tittilation of the image is heightened by the fact that at the time the print was made (probably the late 1700s judging by the style), geisha normally did were forbidden to have sexual relations with the men they entertained.

  • Thumbnail for Inro and Netsuke
    Inro and Netsuke by Anonymous

    Lacquer, mother-of-pearl, and wood. This small inro, a pouch for carrying medicines, coins, and other valuables, takes the form of a rabbit, complete with feet sculpted on the bottom. The netsuke, or toggle for attaching the inro to the belt, is a tortoise whose head retracts inside its body. The pairing of the tortoise and the hare thus evokes the famous fable of Aesop, with which the Japanese would have been familiar in the late Edo and early Meiji periods.
