Provenance

This Japanese theater costume, from the Noh Theatre, in the form of a kimono was also called Atsuita-Karaori due to its complex weaving technique. The pattern of this Karaori, worn especially by young women, shows a variation of dance fans on a golden background. Theater costume and facial mask were important tools for the interpretation of a role on stage. They supported the character of the dance, the interpretation of the singing and influenced the rhythm of the play.
