EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photograph, taken circa 1904, three elegant Geisha girls from Japan gracefully pose for the camera while miming the ancient proverb "See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil." Dressed in traditional Japanese attire, their kimonos adorned with intricate patterns and vibrant colors, they cover their eyes, plug their ears, and press their hands to their mouths, symbolizing the actions that represent the seeing, hearing, and speaking aspects of the proverb. The Geisha girls' hairstyles, with their long, flowing black hair piled high on their heads and held in place by ornate hairpins, add to the allure of the scene. Their faces are painted with subtle makeup, enhancing their natural beauty and understated elegance. This intriguing image offers a glimpse into the rich history and culture of Japan's traditional social position of the Geisha and the courtesan society. The Geisha, or "artists," were highly skilled in various arts, including music, dance, and conversation, and were revered for their ability to entertain and provide companionship to their clients. The proverb they mimic in this photograph serves as a reminder of the importance of discretion and the role of the Geisha as confidants and keepers of secrets. The amusing and bizarre nature of the girls' actions in this photograph make it an interesting and unusual addition to any collection of Japanese art or cultural history. This evocative image invites viewers to ponder the deeper meanings behind the Geisha's role in Japanese society and the enduring significance of the proverb "See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil.
