"Snake and Melon" is an antique Japanese Ukiyo-e woodblock print created by Totoya Hokkei. Ukiyo-e, meaning "pictures of the floating world," is a genre of art that emerged in Japan during the Edo period (1603-1868). This print depicts a coiled snake, its head raised and tongue flicking out, alongside a large, ripe melon.
The imagery of snake and melon may have symbolic meaning. The snake is seen as a symbol of wisdom and longevity while the melon is a symbol of fertility and abundance in japanese culture. This print is a beautiful example of the traditional art form and a valuable piece of Japanese cultural history.
