Woman divers

There are many SHUNGA of woman diver.

A wonderful scene featuring four awabi (abalone) divers who are fishing for pearls.
The knife one of them is holding between her teeth is for opening the oysters.
Two other divers are squatting in front of a fire to dry themselves.
The pearl diver who is jumping into the sea is neatly counterbalanced by the breaking waves on the rocks giving the design a dynamic force.
