Rope Wear Fashion!


From XO Kawaii:

Inspired by Hokusai’s “Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife,” we are offering our first line of Ukiyo-e inspired women’s wear.  The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife is the most famous image in Kinoe no Komatsu, published in three volumes from 1814. The book is a work of shunga (erotic art) within the ukiyo-e genre. The image depicts a woman, evidently an ama (a shell diver), enveloped in the limbs of two octopuses. The larger of the two mollusks performs cunnilingus on her, while the smaller one, his offspring, assists by fondling the woman’s mouth and left nipple. In the text above the image the woman and the creatures express their mutual sexual pleasure from the encounter.
