In this Oriental tapestry we see a Japanese Geisha with a dog. This wall hanging renders one of the most well known symbols of Asian culture and Japanese culture in particular. Steeped in tradition, the Geisha is a woman with a very specific place in Asian culture. Geishas train from a young age in the arts including music, the fine arts and dance. Their costume is shown here with their hair pieces, kimonos and distinct pale makeup. Their role includes entertainment with conversation, performance of art, and social skills to interact with the highest levels of Japanese society. This tapestry has a traditional rendition that is typical of those found in ancient scrolls and wall hangings, with its harmonious use of color and traditional style of composition and design. This Oriental tapestry "Lady wth a Dog" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging.
