Physical description:

A young man and awabi (abalone) diver engage in erotic play on the beach near her basket of abalone. Gorgeous design very beautifully carved and printed.


Many sources on the Internet attribute this print to Yanagawa Shigenobu II. We will try to sort this out in the future. The confusion may be more understandable considering that Shigenobu was Hokusai's son-in-law.
