Why a Shunga Gallery blog contest? Although, Japanese shunga is considered as erotic art of the highest order globally, as underlined by important exhibitions such as that of the British Museum in 2013, of its fame we have only seen the tip of the iceberg.
Without The Fear
It’s our intention to offer a platform (including a forum later this year) for shunga fans and collectors to enjoy, discuss and learn more about this fascinating and important art without the fear of censorship.
In our neverending efforts to promote this great art we have decided to hold frequent contests with the chance of winning attractive prizes for all the followers of our blog and on social media.
The contest is simple. All you have to do is to comment to this post and leave your name (in the comment box below this page!).
The winner will be announced both through our newsletter and the social media platforms on which we are active on the 20th of March after randomly selecting a name by drawing it out of a bowl the old fashioned way.
So what’s in it for the winner? A lovely genuine woodblock reproduction of Hokusai‘s classic ‘The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife‘ print ! Carved by the highly-skilled Japanese artist Yuuya Shimoi who is one of the few schooled woodblock craftsmen working in Japan today.
Published only in a small exclusive edition, this coveted woodblock print can be yours! In short, the rules again. Comment and leave your name. Random winner selected on March 20th and will be announced March 22nd. Prize will be shipped worldwide and free. Good luck!
