Rare Antique Japanese Sex Toy - Harigata - Shunga - c.1850.

> Click on the Picture.

Description:

A magnificent antique Japanese papier mache dildo (harigata or harikata) with silk foot including operational string 
(not authentic) and original fitted wooden box. Size: approx. 6 1/2" long. Artist unknown. Date: c.1850. C
ondition: some usage wear. This is a very skillfully crafted and detailed piece of Japanese erotica which meticulously mimics the real male genitals.

The harigata is an artificial penis usually made of leather, and at times a strap-on made from papier mache, horn, ivory or tortoiseshell. The geisha in Old Edo (1618-1868) enjoyed solitary pleasure with such a life-like dildo inserting it into her vagina. The harigata is often depicted in shunga (erotic print) especially in its depiction of lesbian intimate encounters. One of the most famous examples is Eiri's masterpiece from his 'Models of Calligraphy' (Fumi no kiyogaki) series depicting such a female-female scene (see for illustration Shunga Page 3 at the top !).

Surviving sex toys from the 19th Century are incredibly rare !

The tsunokakushi "snood" is today seen only at traditional weddings, but in the Edo period was a feature of the traveling costume of the ladies of the daimyo (landlord) and Shogun harems, used mainly on pilgrimages to famous temples, especially in the late Spring. Such rare opportunities to get out of the confines of the seraglio were often utilized to effect liaison with secret lovers, as we view in this dynamic scene. Here we discern a nice balance between the heads, the bodies and the genitalia.

They are often portrayed carrying bundles of firewood or coal on their heads, this Oharame uses her bundle of coal sticks as a pillow.

Description:

Original antique Japanese color woodblock Yanagawa Shigenobu (1787-1832). Shunga (Erotic print). Oban yoko-e size: 10" x 15" inches. Date: c.1820s. Series: ' Yanagi no Arashi'  (Willow Storm). Fine impression (with gauffrage and metallic pigments), near fine colors and condition. Very slight traces of a centerfold, minor marks and flaws otherwise magnificent state! Look for the funny details like the moustache shaped pubic hair above the woman's vagina! The oxidation effects throughout the whole design are truly magnificent !

References:
This specific print (see pictures!) is depicted in 'Japanese Erotic Fantasies' by C. Uhlenbeck and M. Winkel on p.177 (Ill.65b).
Antoher impressions are depicted on p.87 (Ill.98) in 'Strangers in Paradise' by Dr.Richard Lane, Vol.4 'Shigenobu, Yanagi no
Arashi ' by Yoshikazu Hayashi, p.285 in 'Sex and the Floating World' by T. Screech.

This is the 11th design of the ' Willow Storm' -series.Yoshikazu Hayashi says in Vol.4 Shigenobu, Yanagi no Arashi: "At last we reach the final two prints in the series. One is immediately struck by the Chinese man's ingenuity. But while that print used a Japanese, here we have a Chinese man: an amusing flight of fancy indeed. Not surprisingly, the Chinese man speaks in incomprehenisble Chinese, but a translation is included to keep us laughing. the exaggeration here is truly extreme. The bodily fluids flow out the tea cup like a waterfall. There are shunga in China as well, but their unremarkable portrayals are nothing compared to this kind of hyperbole. In my opinion exaggeration is everything in an erotic print, which is what makes Japanese shunga the best in the world. The black object coiled around the man's head is his pigtail. It would normally hangdown his back, but he has wrapped it around his head like a headband. Looking for all the world like one of those fearsome demons that stand guard at the entrance of a temple; the Chinese man's face is Shigenobu's hallmark".

Quote:
"I believe that this particular set, however, is probably not only one of his masterpieces, but should also be included among the
best works in Edo shunga history". (Yoshikazu Hayashi in Vol.4 Shigenobu, Yanagi no Arashi )
