  • "Snake and Melon" is an antique Japanese ukiyo-e art print created by the artist Totoya Hokkei in the 19th century. The print depicts a scene of a snake coiling around a melon, which is a symbol of summer and abundance. The snake is a common symbol in Japanese art, and it is often associated with the idea of change and transformation. The melon, on the other hand, is a symbol of fertility and good luck.

    Totoya Hokkei was a master of the ukiyo-e style, and this print is a fine example of his skill as an artist. He was known for his ability to capture the essence of everyday life and to create beautiful and timeless works of art that continue to be admired and treasured to this day. This print is a unique and powerful piece of art that is appreciated for its beauty, symbolism, and historical significance.

    You'll receive a heavyweight, giclée, acid-free print that's created to last for generations. The museum-quality paper works perfectly with large, full-color images. The lightly-textured, matte finish captures fine lines and subtle colors perfectly, resulting in stunning works of art (without unwanted reflections).

Top quality item. It's almost like a 3D image. Colors are better in real than the picture.
