Nirvana !?

This SHUNGA is maybe affected by nirvana painting of Buddha..

But there is a big *** !! in the center instead of Buddha..
And there are many women whose face is like a vagina around him.
They seem to be crying.

You can see some soils,eggs,mushrooms,bamboo shoots around them.
Actually they were considered a potent aphrodisiac at that time.

Even now we have the festival which worship the male genital organs in Japan.
It’s strange and interesting customs..
