This picture represents a classic image of a Geisha dressed for an average working evening. Note that she is clad from throat to feet in thick padded robes that reveal nothing. Her face is hidden behind a thick cosmetic masks that reveals nothing beyond a serene and classic beauty. A Geisha could assume this posture for hours if need be. Parade rest, as it were. The true Geisha was a Consummate Professional Hostess and Entertainer, not a sexual object.
