I have to do a project for World Literature and it is due soon, and I just need a little help with it. It’s supposed to be a sort of book report, but in any way we want, and I chose to do a”shoe box”. I’m supposed to have 15 items in the shoe box that tell what my story is about. I know what the book is about, but I’m not sure of what to put in there. Two of the things I’m putting inside are a Geisha doll, and a Japanese Flag.
A A geisha doll is a good idea, although I’m not so sure about the flag. Although the story takes place in japan, it’s not really about japanese nationalism. Here are some of my ideas:
Silk to represent the expensive kimonos geishas wear
A fish to represent her humble beginnings as a fisherman’s daughter
A pumpkin to represent Chiyo’s friend
White powder – like what geishas put on their faces and exposed flesh
Tea cups to represent the teahouses
A jug of water: Chiyo and her mother are said to have “water” personalities
A shamisen, caligraphy quill, and dance shoes to represent the various arts geishas must know
Coins – they can represent a lot of things: the debt chiyo must pay the okiya, the money the “bad” geisha (I forget her name) slipped into her robes when accused of stealing and selling jewels, the record-breaking mizuage, etc
The following references are all an attempt to relate to the term “Japanese doll Geisha,” and will include images and articles. I deliberately left out anything linking to Amazon or eBay — the reader can easily enough make his or her own search at those two major merchants. (Besides, I already have some Amazon examples beneath this post.) I was willing, though, to allow any references for some alternate commercial sources.
