I love the stories about geisha girls. There is so much history in this rich and varied profession. Many of the girls are prepared from the time they are six or seven years old. I should say were. Many were sold into the profession by parents who needed the money, but did not want to feed another mouth. Especially a girl child. There were a few of these women who became quite wealthy, depending on if they met the right man who would then keep her as a mistress. A few even branched out and made their own investments for their older years so they could live in comfort.
I created this image in Photoshop. This took about 5 hours to complete.
