Description

Woodblock prints of geisha are some of the most popular and iconic images from Japan’s pre-modern era, and the gorgeous, full-colour reproductions in Origami Paper Geisha Prints Small allow everyone to add their exotic elegance and beauty to folded origami models and paper craft projects. Often called “pictures of the floating world,” ukiyo-e prints feature the elegant hostess-entertainers who populated the teahouses and drinking establishments of Japan’s walled pleasure quarters during the end of the Edo period and into the twentieth century. Instantly recognizable by their white makeup, layered kimonos and elaborately pinned and tressed coiffure, these women were considered the epitome of beauty and poise. The prints chosen for this origami paper pack perfectly capture the geisha’s flowing outlines and colourful forms.
