AINU WOMAN -- $135 incl. shipping

Paintings Pastels Art Gallery

comments ()  

This is a  portrait of an early 20th century Ainu woman, an indigenous people from Japan and Russia but originally distinct from the Japanese.  The women were fond of necklaces made of glass beads, embroidered headbands, and earrings that were metal rings with a ball.  They also traditionally had tattooed mouths--making their lips look grotesquely long and large--but this lovely woman does not.
