Lesbian scenes are hard to find in shunga, compared to gay male scenes. Usually they were ordered by a collector. Now, you have to be aware that male homosexuality was closely connected to kabuki theater and sexual fantasy was already included and at same time Yoshiwara brothels had men as target group. Therefore, it was not taboo but rather an economic side to such scenes that led to small production of such views.

Tradition of the Floating World – Artist & Printshop, Muha @ BlackBOX is an example of how some traditions can survive through time and gain root from one culture and epoch into another one. Ukiyo-e, pictures of the floating world, are known through prints and reprints from the 17th century till now. In Japan, during Edo period, ukiyo-e prints served as mass produced posters from commoners. Usually artists would paint for print shop and then print shop would make multiple copies of the work. There was usually mutual understanding or contract between artist and the owner of the print shop, leading to the lifetime relationship.
