This is another piece for my ongoing Geisha art series.

Inspired by my love of the vintage and especially old time circus aesthetics. These two women are partners in performance and possibly in other ways – seductively masked, dressed in fine muslin, posing with their magic wands.

Geisha – The word consists of two kanji, 芸 (gei) meaning “art” and 者 (sha) meaning “person” or “doer”. The most literal translation of geisha into English would be “artist,” “performing artist,” or “artisan.”
