Jonna’s brother, Cliff and his life partner, Shigeru (both more than wonderful), travel to Japan regularly. This small grouping represents two of the countless treasures they’ve brought back to us over the years. The scale is really quite small. The porcelain geisha is just 4″ tall. I have the nagging feeling that the plate is probably upside down, but loved the way it worked with the figure. Sumimasen! (So sorry!) Shot in my Escondido, CA studio with a Nikon D300 and Nikkor 60mm macro lens.
p.s. Cliff tells me (a) the doll is a court lady, not a geisha and (b) the plate is right side up! s.
