Alien to western decency on the verge of hypocrisy, Japanese culture considered erotica as a natural plot for an artistic image. In the picture there is a geisha after a bath. In Japan they take a bath in wooden vats. A man is the first to take a bath, then comes his wife, and his children after her. The poem on the engraving says about a hen jealous of a cock that is staring at a pretty girl.
