She is the symbol of beauty and perfection, the perfect woman. She is fair-skinned, with dark long hair tied up, which shows wealth. She is dressed in all silks which shows she comes from a powerful family which is ideal in arranged marriages. My mom told me when she was a little girl she had one hanging because she was told if she had a geisha hanging in her room she would become just like her. She was the epitome of a role model for the perfect woman girls wanted to become. She has been the model of the perfect woman since the ancient Chinese times. I had a threaded picture of a Geisha in my room when I was a little girl as well as my mother so I am fond of the figure.
