A stylized autumn scene depicts a Maiko, apprentice Geiko (Geisha), performing a dance with a fan. In this artwork, the artist Anna Maia found her inspiration from her first visit to Japan. During this trip, she visited the Gion district in Kyoto where she was very fortunate to get a glimpse of both Geiko (Geisha) and Maiko. You can read more about the Gion district here. In Kyoto the word Geiko is used for the profession of Geisha. Read more about the tradition of Geiko here.
