In addition to this one, posted by George:

Kunisada did the marriage rocks in one of his earliest color prints, an 1807 triptych reproduced in Shigeru Shindo's KUNISADA: The Kabuki Actor Portraits.

A great number of artists have done prints with these rocks included though. Some that spring to mind are Utamaro, Shunzan, Eizan and Eisen. There must be 100s of such prints though, and many (suitably) for prints of the sunrise over the ocean at New Year's.

: : Yeah, I think quite a number of artists have done a version of this. Here's one currently listed on eBay

: : It's not my favorite, but your mileage may vary.

: : One that I fancy was done by Kunisada, I'll try to post the image here but my computer skills are somewhere between poor and non-existant.


: : : Does anyone know which ukiyo-e artists (there may have been many) have done prints of "Myoto-iwa", the famous wedding rocks or couples rocks in Ise prefecture? Any info (I'm actually hoping to buy a print or a copy) would be appreciated.
