EXHIBITION: GEISHA at Rijksmuseum Volkenkunde, Leiden (NL)

Interesting exhibition about GEISHA at Rijksmuseum Volkenkunde, Leiden (NL). Geisha is a world-renowned style icon. The Japanese with the stark white face, red lips and precious kimono is a phenomenon that fascinates the world and stimulates the imagination. A stereotype of Japanese aesthetics, surrounded by mysticism and misunderstandings. But what does her daily life look like? Is it a profession or a calling? This exhibition will show you more. Period: 10 October 2014 up to 6 April 2015.
