KINOE NO KOMATSU PDF

Tea ceremonies, bullet trains arriving to the exact second, intricately dressed, immaculate geisha and the importance of keeping face: these common images of Japan conjure up the notion of a highly-controlled and conservative society. Graphic images of enormous penises and a woman being pleasured by an octopus are not, perhaps, what you might expect. Before the late th century, the Japanese did not share the dominant Western idea that fine art and pornography were very separate things, with different purposes, and that the latter was indecent and offensive and should be kept hidden away. In Japan, shunga was a part of everyday life, enjoyed by all sectors of society and by men and women alike.

Tea ceremonies, bullet trains arriving to the exact second, intricately dressed, immaculate geisha and the importance of keeping face: these common images of Japan conjure up the notion of a highly-controlled and conservative society. Graphic images of enormous penises and a woman being pleasured by an octopus are not, perhaps, what you might expect.

Before the late th century, the Japanese did not share the dominant Western idea that fine art and pornography were very separate things, with different purposes, and that the latter was indecent and offensive and should be kept hidden away. In Japan, shunga was a part of everyday life, enjoyed by all sectors of society and by men and women alike.

These sexually-explicit prints, paintings and illustrated books were carried around, scrolls tucked into sleeves, and were proudly shown off in homes. Samurai often carried shunga into battle as talismans for protection.

In one colourful print we see a pair of lovers hiding under a mosquito net during a thunderstorm- along with her cuckolded husband, looking distinctly and unsurprisingly fed up. Seen from a Western perspective, shunga may at first appear little different from our prolific images of women portrayed as objects of desire.

Yet shunga was made for men and women alike, and shows both of their pursuits of pleasure, as well as images of homosexual love and the occasional tryst involving an animal —such as the aforementioned octopus. Sex in all its forms is shown as a source of enjoyment, rather than shame. Still taboo in Japan even today, only now are we starting to see more of this beautiful, uninhibited art. Or to read more about the works of the greatest Japanese shunga artists, check out our books on Hokusai and Utamaro.
