What is the first historical instance of omo in art?

Recommended Posts

I was thinking about this, ironically while playing Age of Empires II HD over christmas, and while we know the first instance of the tentacle fetish depicted in art in "The Dream of the Fisherman's wife" in 1814, I'm curious if there's anything like that for omorashi. How far back does our fetish go? Any of the historically minded have any information on this?

this is maybe not quite omo but i have to recommend this book “pissing figures 1280-2014” by jean-claude lebensztejn. it’s not exactly omo though there are some examples in it that are about incontinence rather than just pissing:

it’s an easy read though quite scholarly as well. pretty much read it in one sitting.

If they took the trouble to put it on a pot (which is a somewhat elaborate process) they really wanted it for some reason.

Here's a review of that book, which seems to have a view of piss at odds with most modern attitudes: https://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/a-secret-history-of-the-pissing-figure-in-art

It’s as if life then were an endless party, a riot of fluids and fun where every jet, spurt, torrent, and dribble had its place and people were comfortable in their skins. Our forebears knew something that we don’t. They could laugh at what was holy to them. They could regard piss, through some parallax, as a symbol of both purity and Rabelaisian excess.

That was an interesting read, and has many examples of the art in it.

This article has a slightly different take, focussing on the substance of urine rather than the act of peeing - https://www.artuk.org/discover/stories/a-wee-look-at-paintings-of-urine

I also liked this one - https://printsofjapan.wordpress.com/2009/06/29/urine-and-the-arts-小便-技芸/

Though in terms of the earliest probably the Hetaera urinating into the Skyphos has it!

first of all, thank you for introducing this to me! It's amazing! Wow, art, sex, history, fetishes.... weee I'm down a rabbit hole!

Also I think the images should be shared here, because this is a way cool topic!
