Here's a modern take on a geisha wearing a gorgeous, digitally printed dress by Mary Katrantzo. There's a purity about the image with the white snow and delicate features. At the same time, the woman conveys a sophistication and artistry, just as a geisha would.
She's paired with a stylized image of blue cherry blossoms. Of course, the cherry blossom is a flower representative of Japanese culture. It is richly symbolic and is used as a metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life. Its extreme beauty and short-life is often associated with mortality. A perfect fitting to close out the innocence lost series of moodboards.
Theme: Innocence Lost (V.8)
Key words: snow, artist, apprentice, femininity, independence
